Study Media Studies (Film/Music/Theatre/Games) Oxford Summer Courses

Media Studies (Film/Music/Theatre/Games)

The creation of modern media is both a science and an art; combining theories from the fields of psychology and neuroscience with the artist’s creative drive and iterative pursuit of perfection in order to share their perspective with the audience. In this course, we will discuss the origins of modern media before delving into the creative process and toolsets utilised across film, music, theatre and games. Through the analysis of select examples, you will achieve a greater understanding of storytelling and world building devices along with how these can be employed to communicate your own vision.

Media Studies (Film/Music/Theatre/Games)

The Media Studies summer course for 18-24 year olds is taught through four seminars and one supervision study per week. During the weekly supervision study, students will produce an essay which puts what is learned in seminars into action, and expert staff will give you comprehensive feedback on your arguments and writing style.

Have you ever wanted to learn more about how a form of media goes from a creator’s initial conception to an audience’s interpretation? This interdisciplinary course is structured as a combination of theory, critical analysis and practice. In this course, you will examine forms of media (film, music, theatre or game) and explore the process of forming an approach, creating the content, disseminating to an audience, and the effect.

Through your study, you will develop a variety of transferable skills such as critical approach and analysis, independent and group research, a commercial and cultural awareness of creative industries, initiation and development of creative work and an academic approach to all aspects of the arts.
