Course summary

Taking Film and Sociology at Lancaster gives you the opportunity to learn from academics at the Lancaster Institute for the Contemporary Arts and our Sociology Department.

Film combines particularly well with Sociology because it examines cinema's role as a major contemporary cultural form that influences, reflects and shapes social values and beliefs. You’ll examine cinema’s aesthetic importance in the context of an increasingly visual and media-oriented culture, while investigating the connections between contemporary art, theatre, music and film.

You’ll be able to select from a wide range of options in both disciplines to complement your compulsory courses, beginning with the core first-year modules Introduction to Film and Introduction to Sociology. In your second year, your courses include Global Cinema; Understanding Social Thought, and Sociological Research Methods. In your second and third year, you’ll also be able to choose from wide range of options courses, such as Sociology goes to Hollywood, or Imaging the Body. You’ll also complete a Film Dissertation in your final year. Lancaster’s film programme is academic rather than vocational, but you will have the opportunity at each year of the course to make your own digital film using the University’s state-of-the-art equipment.

Careers

Lancaster’s Film and Sociology graduates have strong research, analytical and communication skills, which open doors in the public and private sectors. Our graduates are highly employable and have a strong track record in finding work, especially in the advertising, arts administration, marketing and media industries.

Many alumni go on to follow one of the postgraduate MA degrees offered at Lancaster; undertake vocational postgraduate training in media-related professions such as journalism, or pursue careers in law, computing consultancy, finance and local government.
