Welcome to Film & Screen Media
Film and Screen Media at University College Cork is a vibrant community of lecturers, researchers and graduate students. Led by internationally recognised experts, and with a thriving visiting speakers and guest practitioners component, our undergraduate and postgraduate degrees explore the history of filmmaking through the study of films from around the world, from the birth of cinema to the age of the Internet.
The Department of Film & Screen Media is committed to providing a high quality educational experience, offering our students as much face to face time as possible whilst keeping students and staff safe. To comply with government guidelines and to ensure the safety of both our students and staff, both our BA and MA programmes will be delivered in a blended fashion in 2021-2022. This means students will engage in both online learning (live online events and pre-made online content) and on-campus learning (in-person sessions at UCC). How each module will be delivered depends on a number of factors including the subject being studied, the class size and public health guidelines.
For students unable to attend class due to illness, quarantine, or concerns about underlying medical conditions, online access to classes, tutorials and alternative assessments (where appropriate) will be made available. Please notify your year coordinator of any concerns at your earliest convenience.
In all instances, students are advised to consult Canvas and module co-ordinators with regard to teaching arrangements for specific modules.
