About Kingston School of Art

The course is taught at Kingston School of Art, one of the leading art and design institutions in Europe. Our teaching is guided by two principles: that our students learn by the process of making; and that students are critical practitioners who contribute to the development of the subject areas.

The degree is taught by staff with proven expertise in film and the moving image, and with an established record of teaching and publishing on film and its surrounding cultures.

The team includes Professor John Ó Maoilearca (philosophy, posthumanism), Professor Will Brooker (cultural history and audiences), Carmen Rabalska (representation, gender, post-colonialism), Dr Corin Depper (art film, the image, philosophy), Dr Simon Brown (British film, American television, the horror genre), Dr Patrick O'Neill (youth culture), and Dr Davina Quinlivan (feminism, critical theory, sonic studies).
