Program description

IMACS: International Master in Audiovisual and Cinema Studies MLitt

This two-year MLitt degree offers a unique opportunity to gain comprehensive training in film and media studies while participating in a network of 15 leading programs in Europe and Canada.

Students enrolled in the program spend two semesters at St Andrews, and the remaining two semesters at partner institutions.

The International Master in Audiovisual and Cinema Studies (IMACS) MLitt is a two-year taught program run by the Department of Film Studies.

The program approaches the study of film through a varied intellectual approach, exploring cinema in a global context. You will discover filmmaking cultures outside the canon and examine film through new cultural, theoretical and historical perspectives.

This is the only international MLitt in Film and Media Studies in Scotland and one of only two in the UK. The IMACS program gives students access to 15 (including St Andrews) of the top film and media programs in Europe and the top film studies program in Francophone Canada.
