The Department of Film Studies has developed an innovative Film and Philosophy pathway within its highly successful MA in Film Studies. The pathway will launch in Autumn 2012. A core module and a choice of several options will permit students to explore the rich relationship between film, philosophers, and philosophical ideas, and to forge their own film-philosophical encounters.
