Undergraduate study in Screen Production

What you can study in Screen Production

The BA major in Screen Production is based on three levels of courses: core, schedule and elective courses.

The core Screen Production courses will develop your production skills in scriptwriting, directing, camera, sound and editing, in both fiction and factual genres.

The courses in the Screen Production schedule will complement the production core, providing you with an aesthetic, historical, social, and economic understanding of film and media texts and their respective industries.

Your elective courses will allow you to explore specific directions from a range of disciplines to customise your BA degree according to your personal interests and career goals.

You can apply for the Screen Production major after completing your first year of study.

You need to take COMMS 100 and MEDIA 101 in your first year to be eligible for the Screen Production programme in Stage II.
