Focus entirely on Film and Television Studies. This course is run entirely by Film and Television Studies.
With half your time spent on Literature, this course is run jointly with the department of English and Comparative Literary Studies.
Investigate the power of the moving image, examine how films and television programmes make meaning, and develop your own media production skills too.
With screenings, seminars and lectures, our film studies modules allow you to explore all genres, times and places - from early cinema and historical television to the latest Hollywood blockbusters, world cinema and streamed videos on demand.
There is also the option to study abroad for a year at one of our partner institutions.
