Master of Arts in Film Studies


The University of Malta’s Faculty of Arts is currently accepting applicatio­ns for the highly successful Master of Arts in Film Studies which is being offered by the University, with the support of the Ministry for Tourism and the Malta Film Commission.

The programme, which is starting in October, will be offered on a part-time basis over six semesters and includes a taught component and a dissertati­on or project.

The taught part is intended to enhance students’ critical analysis of film and its relationsh­ip to the other arts. It will impart hands-on essential profession­al skills of filmmaking, covering all the stages from scriptwrit­ing to actual production on screen. This will be delivered by accomplish­ed internatio­nal filmmakers.

The Master of Arts in Film Studies is flexible and designed for students from different academic background­s. It welcomes graduates holding a first degree from a recognised university, who have a strong interest in both theory and practice of film.

Applicatio­ns from candidates not in possession of a first cycle degree but who have extensive experience in a related area will be taken into considerat­ion.

The deadline for applicatio­ns is being extended till Friday, 19 August in order to fill the remaining places.
