Film Studies allows you to explore the history and theory of cinema, alongside issues of genre and the impact of digital technologies on this rapidly changing art form. A combination of core and optional modules will give you a good grounding in the concepts and approaches in film studies while allowing you to explore film from Hollywood to Japan and Korea, art house to blockbusters. With the support of the Centre for World Cinemas at Leeds you’ll have a wide range of options to choose from. If you have A-level Italian or equivalent, Italian A will allow you to become fluent in a major European language while exploring Italy’s fascinating history and rich culture. Core modules will develop your language skills and introduce you to Italian cinema, art, literature or history. But you’ll also choose from an array of optional modules that reflect our diverse research interests, from Dante and Renaissance art to the writings of Italo Calvino, or specialised uses of Italian in business.
