Course Overview

Film Studies enables you to develop the analytical, observational and critical skills that many universities look for. You will explore how film works as a culturally significant medium, both in terms of representation and aesthetics. The course offers the opportunity to study both mainstream contemporary American and British film, as well as more challenging films from the silent era and non-European cinema and experimental film.

What will I learn?

You will develop an appreciation of the historical development of film traditions and styles, from the birth of film to the digital future, and learn how to critically analyse films and apply theoretical concepts. Production is a crucial part of the Film Studies course and your knowledge will inform your filmmaking and screenwriting project, in which you will produce a high-quality short film.
