BA Film & Television W600

Full Time: 3 Years
With our BA Film & Television course, pursue your passion for films with leading academics and visiting practitioners, and have the chance to apply what you learn through practical filmmaking. 
Here at the University of Reading, you will blend practical work with the theoretical study of film from the late nineteenth century to the modern day, including world cinema, avant-garde and experimental filmmaking. You will also explore the cinema of classical and contemporary Hollywood, together with new forms of digital entertainment and video art.
Alongside this, you can investigate television from its origins in the mid-twentieth century to contemporary engagements with new media and digital platforms, from soap opera to sitcom to sci-fi, exploring questions of authorship, genre and audience.
The focus is on your development into a critically informed filmmaker. You will gain academic knowledge and practical skills, with opportunities to collaborate on films and television programmes in the final two years. In addition to learning the histories and meanings of film, you will receive technical training in a range of creative techniques, such as editing, sound and lighting design, and television studio production.
