Film Studies with Humanities Foundation Year - Keele University

At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We’re proud to be ‘University of the Year for Student Experience’ in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too. Studying The Humanities Foundation Year will allow for an exploration and deeper understanding of various subject disciplines, which can then be focused when progressing onto an honours degree at Keele. This course provides preparation for the academic skills required for degree level study, delivering the opportunity to develop the questioning and analytical skills required for progression in your chosen humanities subject. After you have completed your Humanities Foundation Year, you could progress on to the Film Studies course. The Film Studies programme at Keele looks at the medium in local and international contexts, combining a focus on British and other national cinemas with the analysis of an increasingly global film culture. It combines exploration of the history of film as industry, art form and technology, with analysis of its most contemporary trends, including film’s relationship to television. Led by experienced lecturers, the programme at Keele enables students to grasp the significance of film across cultural contexts, its importance as a mode of popular entertainment, and its centrality to expressions of individual, national, transnational, racial and sexual identities. You will also, if you wish, have the opportunity to combine theoretical and historical study with creative filmmaking practice options.
