Course Summary

In this degree, you will explore the power of film and other modern media – drawing on critical approaches based in the humanities and social sciences. Over the course of the Film and Media Studies BA you will discover the relationship between film and other screen, broadcast and print media, whilst engaging with the various theories that have developed around the subject. During your degree you will explore the power of the visual image within modern media. You will do so by considering how we consume media and film, how the two are delivered to audiences and how both film and media represent each other. This course also has an interdisciplinary aspect as you will draw upon expertise from sociology, humanities, history of art and film, and media and communication. You will have the opportunity to get hands on experience of film-making in the second year Film Production module. Regular film screenings in our fully equipped film theatre will expose you to examples of the cinematic canon, whilst seminars will provide you with an opportunity to discuss and share ideas about the film and media you have experienced. Our students have gone on to a range of careers, including film preservation and curating, teaching and other creative aspects of the film and media industries. The range of skills offered by this course also provides a foundation for careers in film journalism and other cultural management positions.
