Objectives

The Master’s Degree in Film and Screen Studies is an international master’s that has the aim of promoting research and reflection on contemporary audiovisual culture and the history and evolution of moving images.

The objective of the Official Master’s Degree in Film Studies and Visual Cultures is to provide a more specific and, at the same time, more transversal training to the numerous graduates in Cinematography, Audiovisual Communication or similar degrees (from Fine Arts to Humanities) who wish to become researchers, teachers, critics of film and other formats of audiovisual creation, as well as festival programmers or content generators for cultural and exhibition institutions.

One of the possible opportunities for students upon successful completion of the Master would be to enroll in a doctoral program -national or international- that would allow them to develop a doctoral thesis in any of the areas of research on film and audiovisuals addressed in the Master.
