The M.Phil. in Film Studies plays a central role in that thriving postgraduate community offering students the opportunity to blend film theory, history and practice. Many of our graduates go on to further study at PhD level, and others pursue careers in the film industry, in film journalism, and other related areas in the arts and media.To apply for this course please see details below.

The M.Phil. in Film Studies at Trinity College Dublin is a unique opportunity to embark upon a detailed investigation into the intellectual currents and aesthetic concerns surrounding the study of film.

Optional introductory modules in screenwriting, creative documentary and editing allow students to balance film theory with practice.
