About

The Art and Film degree is offered at the University of Reading in which you will discover film from the late 19th century to the modern day while developing your professional practice under the guidance of internationally renowned artists and curators at one of the UK's top ten art departments.

Overview

At the University of Reading studying the Art and Film you will explore both the practical and theoretical sides of art and film and investigate how each discipline has influenced the other.

You will join a lively and creative community, explore a vast range of media, experiment with emerging art forms and develop as an artist. Your art will be complemented with modules in "Contemporary art theory" and the "History of art". You will have your own dedicated space, accessible 24 hours a day and 7 days a week and a studio tutor who will help you develop your individual and professional practice. The studios are a busy place with events, screenings, performances and exhibitions happening regularly.

There are regular trips to museums and art galleries to prompt thoughts on how art is displayed and received. You will gain professional experience throughout your degree by taking part in your own exhibitions, public art commissions and events.

In Film, you will choose from a range of modules covering world cinema, avant-garde, experimental film-making, new forms of digital entertainment and video art and the cinema of classical and contemporary Hollywood, such as musicals, melodrama, action cinema and the films of Alfred Hitchcock.

Practical work complements your critical and theoretical study allowing you to apply what you learn through practice, drawing on the market-leading facilities of the £11.4 million Minghella building, including a film and television studio, cutting rooms and audio post-production facilities, three theatre spaces, and a digital cinema.

Placements and collaborations are actively encouraged and there is also the chance to experience life in another country by studying abroad. Opportunities for work-based learning and personal development complement your core learning.

What career can you have?

As well as the practical experience gained on this degree our students also graduate with a range of transferable skills, such as self-motivation, time management and strategic thinking. They have greater self-confidence and are better able to express themselves. We also incorporate Careers development into your learning from your second year.

Many of our graduates develop successful careers as artists, writers and curators. These include a number of famous alumni, such as Turner-prize nominated artists, and PhD students who are award-winning artists and curators at influential museums

Others have found employment in galleries, education, art therapy and film and video production. Recent employers include Tate, Whitechapel Gallery, The Burlington Magazine, Christies, Microsoft, and the BBC.

Other graduates continue their studies both with us and at other universities or go into teacher training.
