Scratch 1Our curriculum emphasizes comparative thinking and theoretical reflection, as well as an integrated approach to creative practice. We introduce students to the canon and its counter-parts, traditions of thought and new movements in the discipline.

Our aim is to train students to become active participants in their own visual culture, as careful scholars and creative practitioners. Film & Visual Culture students learn to think within the movements of cinema and to pursue questions beyond the film frame.

At the undergraduate level, we offer Single and Joint Honours degrees. At the post-graduate level, we offer a Ph.D. in Film & Visual Culture.

Scratch 2Film & Visual Culture is based in the School of Language, Literature, Music and Visual Culture and we play an important role in the George Washington Wilson Centre for Visual Culture, with our staff member, Dr. Amy Bryzgel, currently serving as its director.

The University of Aberdeen is an ancient institution of higher education, founded in 1495 on the shores of Northeast Scotland. Here, students have access to world-class research facilities and a visual culture of mountains and sea.
