Film Studies and Russian

Film Studies is a genuinely interdisciplinary academic field. An encounter with films of different genres, styles, periods and national industries is the core of the subject, and as a film student you will naturally devote a lot of time to viewing films, reading and writing about them, and discussing their meaning and importance. Through practical modules, you will also gain hands-on experience of the roles of producer, director, screenwriter and actor, gaining crucial insights into the fundamental aspects of film production. However, this is just the beginning. Film Studies is a ‘gateway subject’ that inevitably fosters an understanding of visual aesthetics, narrative forms and technological ability, but that also leads students into areas of study as diverse as history, politics, philosophy, technology and performance. This degree programme will familiarise you with the aesthetics, conditions of production and history of film in the United States, Latin America and the major European nations. You will be introduced to the major theoretical and critical developments in film studies, as well as studying Russian. Students with little or no knowledge of Russian start this programme with a preliminary year of intensive language instruction, bringing you up to good A-level standard. You then progress to Year 1, and as the year abroad in Year 3 is optional, you can still finish in four years. Students who already have an A-level in Russian or an equivalent qualification, go straight into Year 1 of the main degree. To achieve the same high level of competence in both languages, you will take core modules in the written and spoken language for each subject all the way through to your final year.
