Course summary

Music and Film have been closely linked since the invention of cinema. This degree will allow you to explore the many connections between these two creative disciplines, from a range of perspectives. You will be part of a thriving music community and will benefit from Bangor's close links with the local, national and international film studies and media making communities in the USA, Australasia and Europe. As a graduate with specialisms in both Music and Film, you will be equipped for a wide range of professional careers.Studying Music is a creative opportunity to grow as a musician, guided by world-renowned composers, performers, musicologists and researchers. You will perform in, or attend performances at, public venues like Pontio or the magnificent Prichard Jones Hall. Your musical experience will extend beyond the lecture room, with opportunities to join the University Symphony Orchestra, Chamber Choir or one of the many student societies for Music, such as Opera, Concert Band, DJ, Musical Theatre, and String Orchestra. You will also benefit from Bangor’s excellent links with leading organisations in the UK, including the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, with whom we have an annual composition workshop.Film Studies combines critical and creative work and practice. Lecturers have a range of interests including American Cinema, British and European film, Japanese and other world cinemas, gender, visual culture, music videos, film analysis, the body and film, film and history, digital technology and film, script writing and screenwriting, film-making, media and film in Wales, acting and performing, language and film, blogging and podcasting, computer games and film, film stars and film on television.‘Placement Year’ and 'International Experience Year’ options are available for this course. You will have the opportunity to fully consider these options when you have started your course at Bangor and can make an application for a transfer onto such a pathway at the appropriate time. You can find more information about these options on our website and if you have any questions, please get in touch.If you don’t have the required qualifications for this degree-level course or are looking to re-enter education after time away from study, then a Foundation Year Programme might be the right choice for you.
