Our French with Film Studies BA programme involves you following required language modules focusing on high-level skills in written and oral French, and selecting from a range of additional modules from both areas of the course for a study pathway that matches your interests. The diverse programme aims to deliver in-depth knowledge of the intellectual debates in modern languages, film studies and their relationships with other disciplines, such as literature, art history, philosophy, architecture, music, politics, and digital media. The course also provides an excellent background for pursuing careers in the media arts and related activities.
