Research culture

The MLitt in Film & Television Studies at the University of Glasgow is a well-established programme taught in Scotland’s media capital. We have an excellent reputation for both teaching and research making this the ideal location for postgraduate study.

In the REF 2014, we performed impressively with 80% of our research evaluated as world leading or internationally excellent.

The programme is taught in the Gilmorehill Centre which offers its own cinema – where you will gather every week for the screenings which are a core part of the curriculum – as well as a Resources Room where you can access our Media Archive which has more than 6,000 holdings, complementing the Library’s extensive collection of Film & Television books and periodicals. The building is the centre of a lively postgraduate culture in the related areas of Film & Television Studies and Theatre Studies. You will therefore be part of a larger community of around 50 postgraduate students whose diverse interests range from film festivals, to national and transnational cinemas, film stars, and media audiences.

We have a number of research students funded under the Arts and Humanities Research Council’s Collaborative Doctoral Awards scheme who are working alongside organisations including BBC Scotland, the Edinburgh International Film Festival and the Glasgow Film Theatre. Postgraduates organise many events through the year, including screenings, reading groups, social events and the annual postgraduate student symposium.

The Gilmorehill Centre is also home to the international journal Screen and the annual Screen conference is held here every summer, attracting leading names in Film & Television Studies from across the world. Students have the opportunity to participate in the conference as well as to engage with guest speakers from the academy and media industries throughout the year in our research seminar programme.
