Central Campus

Content

This one-year taught Masters programme draws on world-class teaching and research expertise across media, from literature to film, music, painting, photography and visual culture more widely.

The programme will make students conversant with intermedial theory and equip them with the critical tools and historical background for understanding and analysing a wide range of intermedial phenomena across different periods and cultures, from ancient Rome to contemporary China, with an emphasis on the modern and contemporary period. It can also be completed part-time over two years.

You will be encouraged to develop your own area of interest and expertise, with specially-designed option courses offering a detailed focus on the interplay between different art forms in, for instance, film adaptation, photo-literature, poetry and music, the graphic novel and modern screen cultures. This leads to a final dissertation, pursuing your research interests further and developing your research skills.
