Film, Media and Cultural Studies

Study Film, Media and Cultural Studies at UON

Square eyes and film buffs will no doubt be drawn to the idea of devoting study to their favourite leisure activity. In the Film, Media and Cultural Studies major you will learn about our culture and key questions concerning media and communication in an era of rapid technological change."

You will look at the production and circulation of a wide range of cultural forms from classic Hollywood cinema to your own blogs and tweets. You will consider the institutions and practices that shape these cultural forms and explore topics ranging across:

  • audiences and consumption
  • gender and sexuality
  • social media and digital labour
  • representation and spectatorship in film and television
  • music and culture

These topics offer opportunities to contextualise and theorise your own experiences as both consumers and producers of popular culture which is the culture of the 'now'.

A major in film, media and cultural studies provides students with an understanding of the role different forms of media plays in contemporary society.

You will learn how to develop and complete projects and have the opportunity to build high-level skills in information and digital literacy, as well as acquiring important transferable personal and professional skills:

  • adaptability
  • communication
  • complex analysis
  • critical thinking
  • initiative
  • research skills

Our academic staff are active researchers in contemporary film and cultural studies, with particular strengths in film theory, television, gender and the media, popular culture, the internet and new media technologies.
