Program overview

The degree is flexible: students study film theory but students 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, students 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 the second and final years, students 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. There is a chance to spend an extra year abroad or an extra year with professional practice between the second and the final year of the education.
