A dynamic learning community in a leading centre of film and television research.
We are one of the longest established centres for film and television studies in the UK, internationally recognised as pioneers in the field. Our research and teaching focuses upon film, television and other media, their complex interrelations, and the creative and cultural contexts in which they are produced and consumed. We are recognised as world leaders in the study of British, Hollywood and Asian cinemas, popular film and television genres, and feminist approaches to media. Some of our major assets include the East Anglian Film Archive, a unique resource utilised by staff and students, our close links with the British Film Institute in London, and MAKE Media, a film production unit housed in the department.
82 per cent of research in Film, Television and Media Studies was rated 4* (world leading) or 3* (internationally excellent) according to the Research Excellence Framework (REF2014), a major Government analysis. Additionally, our research output was rated fourth in the UK in The Research Excellence Framework 2014 rankings.
We've ranked in the UK Top 15 for Communication and Media Studies (The Complete University Guide 2017). Our undergraduate and postgraduate students enjoy excellent teaching and a high level of student experience, as proven by our recurrent placement in the top 10 for student satisfaction for the fifth consecutive year.
We encourage students to make the most of their time with us, with courses designed to provide flexibility and choice, taught by staff who are experts in the field. We enable our students to shape their degree around their own interests and career goals.
