About this course

Combine the study of film with a knowledge of cultural management on this MA Film and Cultural Management degree at the University of Southampton. You'll gain in-depth understanding of the film industry, film theory, and the modern cultural sector, focusing on how cultural management affects visual media. Prepare for a career in film, media or the arts.

On this UK master's course in film and cultural management you'll examine the importance that film has on society.

Depending on your choice of modules, you could study film-related topics such as:

  • festivals and specialist programming
  • policy
  • exhibition
  • marketing and audience development
  • the role of film agencies

You'll gain real-world insight through case studies that draw on local, national and international examples, and study the subject in both national and global contexts.

The cultural sector plays an increasingly significant role in political, social and economic policy because of its potential to enhance cultural life while generating wealth.
