This is a combined honours course, where you study Communications, Media and Culture alongside Film Studies. Communications, Media and Culture is structured around the three key themes of communication, media and culture in contemporary society and will develop your skills as an effective communicator. You can specialise in one theme or engage in all three, according to your interests and career ambitions. Oxford is a media and communications hotspot. It is home to numerous cultural institutions, has a flourishing new media industry, and is one of the world’s leading centres for publishing. Film Studies combines the history, theory and practice of cinema. You will study film analysis and criticism alongside practical work on scriptwriting and video production, and gain valuable insight into the workings of the film industry. A key feature of the course is a work placement option. You will be taught by a team of film specialists and industry professionals with different national and cultural backgrounds, whose diverse research expertise is reflected in the breadth and scope of the curriculum.
