Royal Holloway University of London (Media Arts Centre )




Media Arts at Royal Holloway offers a unique mix of practical media work and innovative media theory. The research output of the Department was rated 5 in the last Research Assessment Exercise, which means that staff are leading writers in their academic fields, and several maintain professional media careers as directors and screenwriters.

The BA Media Arts combines sustained study of the theory and history of film and television with practical production work at near industry standards. The course is conceived as a preparation for a lifetime's work in a rapidly changing field rather than training for the industry of today. Graduates are highly employable, and have found work in a wide range of fields.

The new BA programme in Film and Television Studies builds on the established strengths of the highly-rated Media Arts and Modern Languages departments at Royal Holloway to offer students a comprehensive grounding in the history and theory of moving image media, and the opportunity to develop their own appreciation of film and television’s rich and diverse artistic, social and political traditions.

With a particular emphasis on Hollywood and European cinemas and UK television, the course also affords ample scope for the study of non-Western cinemas, global television and non-narrative (“art”) film. Over the three-year programme, students will encounter film- and programme-makers as varied as Michael Mann, Dennis Potter, Abbas Kiarostami, Jane Campion, Alan Ball, Jean Renoir – to name but a very few – in numerous genres, movements, historical periods and social contexts.

Combinations of formal lectures, small group teaching and individual tutorials allow students to benefit from close daily contact with staff who are internationally recognised for their expertise in their subject areas.

BA Film and Television Studies does not include any practical filmmaking courses. Students interested in taking a degree with a practice component should apply for BA Media Arts.
