Programme specification:

The programme will: give you a unique insight into film culture and how cinematic images mediate societies. Throughout the programme, you will be given the opportunity to explore the richness of world cinemas and gain in-depth knowledge of historical, theoretical, and intercultural approaches to the study of film, as well as the essential skills valued by employers.

Our BA Film Studies begins with structured study across a number of bespoke compulsory modules that introduce you to the foundations of the discipline and to other forms of audio-visual culture. You will find out more about the history, language and art of film as a global industry and develop a toolbox of analytical methods and skills.

At levels 2 and 3, core modules will enable you to develop skills in a range of critical approaches to the study of film, and our wide range of options will encourage you to actively pursue your own passion for film by choosing modules that interest you the most. In addition to modules about film culture, genre and the power of film to shape the world we live in, you will have the opportunity to draw on the wider expertise of the School of Languages, Cultures and Societies in world cinemas by choosing modules such as French, German, Italian, Chinese and Japanese cinemas.

Across all levels, our BA Film Studies offers research-led teaching from enthusiastic experts in the field. It also offers innovative assessment methods (sequence analysis, creative logs, video essays) and a considerable element of research-based learning that culminates in an independent research project of your choice at Level 3.
