Film and media are central to individual identities, local and national cultures and to globalised political and economic spheres. The BA Film and Media (Hons) degree at the Queen Margaret University examines these topics from the perspective of the academic disciplines of film studies and media studies.


On this BA Film and Media (Hons) degree at the Queen Margaret University you’ll study film as an artistic and commercial enterprise, as well as various media institutions and the debates surrounding them. You’ll engage in deep critical thinking about culture, media and society as a whole.

You will also develop real-world technical skills in video and media production, teamwork, academic research, project management and a variety of forms of communication. Modules in the first two years will introduce you to key developments in film and media, and key concepts in film and media studies, including the emergence of cinema and the establishment of national broadcasting systems, and concepts like narrative, popular culture and citizenship.


You’ll graduate as a critical maker and consumer of media. You’ll be technically confident in the field, with rounded practical skills, and raring to succeed in the career of your choice. Our graduates are making names for themselves in film and television production, media research, PhD and academic research, public relations, marketing, advertising, arts and cultural management. Employers including the Edinburgh International Film Festival, Edinburgh Filmhouse, Channel 4, and the Leith Agency have snapped up their skills and attitude.
