In the digital, cable and satellite age, film and television play an increasingly diverse role in the audiovisual and communications industry. This programme offers an in-depth study of Irish cinema and television from historical, cultural, social and economic perspectives.

If you have an interest in the audiovisual sector, either through your undergraduate studies, extra-curricular activities or simply through consuming film and television, this is a dynamic and unique Irish course. Our students often hold a primary degree in the humanities and social sciences but we are open to considering students from other backgrounds and those in employment, such as teachers, who want to utilise a career break or leave of absence.

Because of the complex issues raised in addressing questions of national identity, in what is perhaps the most resolutely international of all cultural industries, particular importance will be attached to the study of the concept of 'national cinema' in Ireland.

Programme

To provide students with an intensive and rigorous grounding in film and television studies from a contemporary cultural perspective.

To analyse the impact on Ireland of audiovisual policy in Europe and 'national cinema' developments in Europe, Australia and developing countries.

To understand how and why Ireland and the Irish have appeared as they do on screen.

To gain an insight into the inner workings of the Irish film and television industries and how this relates to the increasingly globalised international audiovisual arena.

To bring critical perspectives into line with recent major developments in film studies, which have emphasised film-making and television production as social and economic institutions.

General Entry Requirements

Successful applicants will normally possess a good honours degree in the Humanities or Social Sciences or an equivalent qualification.

International Applications

International candidates are expected to have educational qualifications of a standard equivalent to those outlined above. In addition, where such candidates are non-native speakers of the English language they must satisfy the university of their competency in the English language. 

Dublin City University is proud to award merit-based scholarships to high achieving students who enter the Faculty of Engineering and Computing and the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences for the 2016/17 academic year. These scholarships are available to Indian applicants only and are based on academic merit to those who have a Full Offer. 

The Faculties also award scholarships of €1,000 to high achievers entering Masters and Bachelor programmes who are ranked by academic achievement.
