Film Studies and History are both extremely rewarding subjects to study in their own right, but combine the two in one course and you’ll gain a unique perspective on both. The two subjects naturally inform each other, and you’ll be able to gain fresh insights and develop your own specialisms too. On your course you’ll be able to choose from a range of optional modules covering a wide spectrum of topics in both Film and History so 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 popular cinema 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, and how great works of literature are adapted to the big screen. Screenwriting, music and performance are all also part of the curriculum. 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. With history, we'll give you the chance to shape your studies to your interests. Our modules are historically and geographically diverse, so you can pick the periods and places that fascinate you the most. Where we can we’ll work with primary source materials, and give you all the support you need during your studies. While you’re here you could build up some very useful and transferable skills. To analyse and communicate. To put together a convincing argument. To gain the self-discipline to work on your own, and to work with others to assess challenges and solve them. These are all vital skills that employers are looking for, and you could develop them on this course, while studying subjects that fascinate you.
