Introduction

The master's degree in Film and Screen Studies is an international master's degree whose main goal is to promote research and reflection on contemporary audiovisual culture and on the history and evolution of the moving image.
El ámbito de acción del máster es tanto el cine en sus más diversas acepciones (ficción, documental, experimental, cine de autor, cine popular, etc.), desde diferentes perspectivas (histórica, estética e industrial), sin excluir el área de los estudios culturales, los estudios de género o los estudios sobre la recepción. Atiende también a las innovaciones de este arte (realidad virtual, realidad aumentada, cine 360, cine XR, etc.), y al cambiante universo multipantalla en que se encuentra inmersa la sociedad contemporánea: series de televisión, videojuegos, contenidos interactivos o creados específicamente para internet, cine expandido, videoarte, etc. Su enfoque es transversal y pone especial énfasis en la intersección entre el audiovisual y los estudios culturales. La titulación, dedicada a la investigación y reflexión sobre el cine y la cultura audiovisual contemporánea, se imparte de forma mayoritaria en inglés, por lo que va dirigida a estudiantes tanto del ámbito nacional como internacional.
