This is a combined honours course, where you study Japanese Studies alongside Film Studies. Japan is a fascinating, complex and vibrant country with the third largest economy in the world. Think sushi, sumo, Sony, Shinto, Toyota, karaoke, kabuki, karate and manga. If you would like to explore Japanese society and language, this course is for you. Our course combines language modules with the study of specific aspects of society and culture, taught by specialists in the field. 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.
