Film & Visual Culture and Philosophy

Film & Visual Culture and History of Art at Aberdeen adds to your rigorous training in the history and theory of the moving image in the 21st century with a fascinating exploration of how we as humans approach the ‘big questions’ of fundamental importance to us throughout the ages to the present day. Combined with your specialist studies, the intellectual skills you will develop will make you a very attractive graduate with wide career options, including business. Our unique Film and Visual Culture programme combines close analysis of visual objects and artefacts – analogue and digital, moving and still, underground and mainstream – with theories of visual representation, production and circulation. You will gain specialist knowledge and skills in the academic study of cinema, with an emphasis on building analytical skills in research and critical writing. You will also have the opportunity to develop skills in digital video production and web design. Philosophers attempt to answer questions such as: What is knowledge? What is the nature of truth? Why should we act morally? Philosophy is just as much the study of reasoning and argument as it is the application of thought to specific problems. What makes Philosophy at Aberdeen especially attractive is the breadth of courses, the user-friendly materials you will use, and the experts who will teach you. In your first year alone, you will study topics such as How Should One Live? Controversial Questions, and Experience, Knowledge and Reality. Your specialist film studies will prepare you for a career in film, new media or creative arts and the intellectual skills you will develop through studying philosophy will make you a very attractive graduate for a range of career options, including in business.
