Canterbury Christ Church University Film Radio and Television

Studying Film, Radio and Television at Canterbury Christ Church University offers the chance to learn about a variety of media before specialisation. In addition, you will be expected to explore the interface between practice and theory in a way that will enhance creativity, analytical skills and communication in a programme that embeds employability into its structure and which is delivered by passionate and approachable staff. You’ll have access to excellent equipment and be encouraged to work both as part of a team and individually in ways that will help to develop transferable skills that are vital in the developing media landscape while simultaneously giving you the opportunity to explore and develop your own relationship with media arts

What will I study?

While your first year will revolve around core modules, that introduce you to the three traditional media and theoretical approaches to them, years two and three are shaped by your optional modules and offer a choice of practical and theoretical modules that allow you to specialise but also develop new and complementary skills and interests.

We have our own purpose-built specialist facilities where you’ll make films, television shows and radio features in your first year before choosing from a range of optional modules that might include animation, documentary, screenwriting, editing, cinematography and a variety of theoretical modules ranging from American independent cinema or popular television through to editing theory in your second year. In the third year, while you maintain the practice theory balance, you can take a traditional or a mixed media dissertation or you can opt for a course geared at preparing you for a career in the media. Alternatively you might explore the software required for live cinema. Through engagement with a dedicated team of full-time academics, through input from industry professionals as guest speakers, associate lecturers or through their input to the Industry Advisory Panel, you can depend on the programme maintaining industry standards while also allowing you the creative space to explore your own artistic and creative potential and the intellectual stimulation to expand your horizons and challenge yourself daily.
