Here are two subjects that naturally go together. You’ll study the different genres and styles of film, from silent movies to contemporary digital image making, and look at film theory too. You’ll also be able to explore the dramatic arts, learning about the history and techniques of play-acting, while having the chance to get involved in productions. On your course you’ll be able to choose from a wide range of optional modules in both film and drama. You can build up a strong foundation of both subjects before moving on to what really fascinates you. Studying film, we’ll look at a wide range of cinematic forms. From the latest Hollywood blockbuster through to challenging avant-garde works, you’ll be able to study a rich and varied selection of genres. We’ll also look at topics like national cinemas, and the work of individual filmmakers. You could look at adaptation -how great works of literature are adapted to life on the big screen. But it’s not all theory. We’ll also give you the chance to try your hand at filmmaking too. If you choose one of our documentary filmmaking modules you could get behind the camera and start exploring. On the drama side of the course, we’ll look at both theory and practice. We aim to give you a thorough grounding in drama techniques, approaches to developing performance and to perform yourself. It’s all about giving you the opportunity to develop your own skills, helping you produce intelligent, thoughtful and innovative work.
