Course summary

The Joint Honours in Film Studies provides you with a thorough grounding in film history and key theoretical approaches to studying film as well as the opportunity to develop specialist areas of interest. **Film Studies** - You will expand your experience of film through taught units and screenings that focus on both classical and contemporary films, covering a wide range of film cultures from around the world. - You will study mainstream and non-mainstream films in order to broaden your understanding of the history of film, as well as the debates and issues that are informing and generated by current practice in film and shaping its future. - As you enhance your skills of close analysis, you will also develop an understanding of how film engages with socio-cultural and political concerns, placing the films you study in their historical context as well as thinking about current debates and future challenges for cinema as a medium.- The course emphasises historical and theoretical approaches to studying film rather than practical production. **Russian** - You will be provided with a broad grounding in Russian area studies, with an emphasis on the integrated study of language, culture and society.- Independent, monitored self-study will reinforce your knowledge of grammar and vocabulary. - Our language courses are taught by native speakers of Russian and English speakers with a superior command of Russian, and are supplemented by structured independent language learning activities. - There are separate pathways for beginners and post-A level students in the first two years of study. - You will benefit from access to a range of Russian cultural and social events to further your study of the language and culture.
