Program description

Awarded by: The University of Edinburgh

The PhD in Film Studies is a three-year full-time or six-year part-time degree programme, which allows you to pursue a research topic in depth and produce a thesis of approximately 80,000 words.

The MSc by Research degrees can be pursued in one of two routes: either two substantial essays followed by a 15,000-word dissertation, or a single piece of research leading to a 30,000-word dissertation.

As well as being a highly respected qualification from a top-ranking university, a postgraduate research degree in film studies places you at the heart of a vibrant, artistic city with a flourishing film culture.

Our associations with the renowned Edinburgh International Film Festival, along with other festivals, cinemas and film organisations, will support and inspire you in your research. So too will our extensive library of texts and DVDs, editing facilities, in-house cinema and access to the impressive collections of the National Library of Scotland and local cultural centres.

We can provide supervised research on a wide range of topics, such as film aesthetics and film and philosophy, various national cinemas, the work of individual filmmakers, cinema in relation to other art forms, and film exhibition.

We will consider thematic projects and research on genres, movements and theories. For interdisciplinary topics, expertise is on hand from within the school and beyond, including staff researching literature, anthropology, art history, music and more.
