The Film and Television programme offered by the University of Bristol has particular strengths in historical research, audience studies, film theory and aesthetics, and offers the opportunity for practice-based research as well as the traditional written dissertation. Where research proposals span various disciplines, a supervisory team can be assembled across departments and faculties to meet the needs of the project.
This programme is particularly well-suited to the development of careers in higher education, and for work on high-level research and creative projects in the fields of film and television.
