For over 30 years, Kent has been at the forefront of developing film as an academic subject. Our expertise means that you have a wide choice of areas to explore. As a student, you become part of the community based within the School of Arts building – a creative hub for students of film, drama, media studies and art history. Our degree programme: Our degree is flexible: you study film theory but you also have the option to explore film practice – for example, through developing the skills of a film critic or getting involved in creative film production. In the first year, you cover the language of film (framing, sound, editing, performance, lighting), learn about the theory and the history of film, and can take a practical filmmaking module. In your second and final years, you have a huge range of modules to choose from, covering everything from avant-garde to animation, with a variety of practice modules too, including screenwriting and documentary film. Year abroad: Your year abroad takes place between your second and final year of study. In previous years, students have studied at our partner institutions in the following countries: Canada; Hong Kong; Japan; France; Germany; Ireland; Italy; USA.
