The programme is built on the acquisition of key skills and relevant subject knowledge through a wide range of modules, including some that are practically orientated to provide an alternative but complementary means of exploring critical and theoretical issues. The initial academic year is foundational and involves core modules that introduce you to ideas and ways of working to enable you to build on your prior learning and begin to develop an understanding of the diversity of film studies and cinema. Study during the second academic year is more specialised and there are some core modules that focus study on theoretical and research skills. However, the majority of study in the subsequent academic years involves optional modules that allow you to focus your study on areas that interest you. The final academic year offers greater scope for more in-depth study and further specialisation. With the exception of the Dissertation, module choices during the final year are entirely optional. Within this structure of options, you may specialise in particular areas of film or choose to take modules that reflect the wide range of film forms and traditions that exist. For example, you may specialise in theoretical studies of film or focus on the development of national cinemas. There are also modules in practical film techniques and skills. Developing a critical and analytical engagement in the academic study of film, both as a single subject and with an awareness of its convergence with other subject areas and within the developing creative industries sector, is fundamental to the programme. You are equipped with the skills and abilities that enable long-term professional development and career aspirations, and a high level of criticality with respect to information and its use.
