History and Film Studies

The BA History and Film Studies degree is an innovative degree programme combining these two interlinking subjects, offering opportunities for critically engaging with how historical events have been recorded and reconstructed through visual media. You’ll explore world history alongside the history of film. You'll be able to choose from a wide range of options across the two subjects. Specially designed modules will bring your two degree subjects into dynamic dialogue, examining areas such as propaganda and documentary. You'll also have access to resources like our on-campus television studio and the unique holdings at the East Anglian Film Archive, where there are opportunities for practical experience in film-making and archival research. This is a unique resource which you can make use of during your time here. We have close links with the British Film Institute in London. Our Film, Television and Media Studies department is recognised as a leading centre for the study of British, Hollywood and Asian cinemas, popular film and television genres and feminist approaches to media. **Course Structure** **Year 1** In the first year you’ll be introduced to the major academic debates in film studies and history. At the same time you’ll develop the key skills needed to analyse and interpret a range of media texts and historical documents. Modules at this stage cover topics such as the nature of film history and visual(ising) history. **Year 2** You’ll deepen your knowledge in modules covering topics such as propaganda and film genre. You’ll also begin the specialisation that continues in the third year. Modules at this stage cover subjects such as documentary: history, theory and criticism, heritage, and public history. You’ll also have opportunities for internships in the second year. Previous students have undertaken placements with organisations including local radio stations, television production companies and the East Anglian Film Archive. **Year 3** You’ll continue to specialise, choosing from modules on a range of areas according to your own interests. Modules may include film and memory and the representation of the past, and genres such as science fiction. You’ll also develop your research skills in our dissertation module which includes a period of supervised independent study. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
