You’ll explore the historical and continually evolving relationship between film and photography through a rich combination of academic study and creative practice.
You’ll study a range of production practices using our industry-standard facilities, such as digital filmmaking, screenwriting and digital photography, and explore the ways in which theory and practice can support each other. At the same time, you’ll examine different approaches to understanding dominant forms of communication throughout history.
Optional modules will allow you to focus on film production, scriptwriting, photography, film analysis and theory, and media and communication studies.
You’ll gain practical production and post-production skills alongside a broader understanding of the historical, cultural, business and managerial contexts of these key media.
This Film, Photography and Media course from University of Leeds will allow you to develop your creative and technical skills across three different yet related disciplines, along with in-depth theoretical knowledge and important transferable skills in communication, visual and critical awareness, writing, interpretation, project management and research.
Our graduates are recruited by a variety of prestigious companies in different sectors of the media and creative industries, including film and TV production companies, web-based companies and advertising and marketing agencies. Others pursue postgraduate study or freelance work – and some also go on to start their own businesses and form independent production companies.
