    The Oxford Brookes Language and Discourse interdisciplinary group has a specific focus on the relation between forms discourse, ideology and society.

    Our interests range from the production, interpretation and comprehension of discourse; to its mediation through materials, media and technologies; to the role it plays in social issues of gender, class, race, identity, politics, culture, literacy, and beyond.

    Film Studies and Digital Media Production have become hugely dynamic academic areas because of the increasing transformation in the creative world. This transformation requires talented graduates with a whole new set of skills to respond to a fast-moving industry. Our programmes offer the ideal combination of theoretical and technical expertise to prepare students for a career in film, television, and digital media, as well as to pursue further postgraduate studies in these areas.

    My role as Programme Lead is to ensure the academic portfolio is in line with the industry requirements, but also that students are offered the best experience to succeed in their ambitions. I am fully committee to pursue this and I work closely to students in Film Studies and Digital Media Production in order to ensure support, academic guidance and opportunities are offered to improve the prospects of our graduates’ career in such a thriving interactive sector.
