Subject

Cinematics

The Single Honours programme offers the opportunity to study an exciting range of films from different periods and international contexts; you will watch films from American, European, Asian and African cinemas. You will gain a deep and wide ranging knowledge of film as a cultural, social, industrial and global phenomenon and familiarity with different conceptual and theoretical approaches to film. The range of films studied will equip you to understand the complex histories of the medium as well as how important issues of cultural difference are raised through cinema, giving you the tools and vocabulary to take a questioning attitude to your own culture. We encourage you to make the most of the facilities available to broaden and enhance your study of film, not just on campus but also through the lively film culture (festivals, art-house cinema, media facilities) in the city itself.

The first year of study familiarises you with the specialised language used in the analysis of film and the way to study film as a visual and aural art form. It gives you an introduction to the most important movements and moments in cinema history, provides an introduction to some basic areas of film theory, and begins to engage with the cross-cultural and transnational exchanges between world cinemas. In the second year, you will study the theoretical aspects of time and place in film and the history of American cinema. You will also be able to choose a module option on European cinema, cinema adaptations or from a range of other modules.

The final year allows you to pursue your own interests by choosing from a wide array of specialist modules. You will also write a dissertation on a topic of your choice.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

A few years ago graduates from this subject were having a very hard time but things have improved a lot thanks to our active media, film and photographic industries - much the most common employers for this group. The most common jobs are in the arts — as photographers, audio-visual technicians, operators and designers, as directors, as artists and as graphic designers. Training in presenting sound and graphics is useful in other industries as well, so you can find graduates in journalism, in advertising, in business management, in events management and in web design and IT. Be aware that freelancing and self-employment is common in the arts, as are what is termed 'portfolio careers' — having several part-time jobs or commissions at once.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.
