About the programme

This degree provides an approach that integrates two ways of presenting cultural narratives and explorations; film and dramatic performance. The film studies element of the programme offers a firm foundation in visual literacy, film genres and film theory by introducing you to a wide range of film-making and viewing across the globe.

As well as the drama studies core courses, first year courses include Film Analysis, and Issues in Film Studies.

In Year 2 you look at issues of film theory and film genres in greater depth, before moving on to explore a range of cinematic practices.

In the final year, you take two thematic options from a range of film studies courses and complete a film studies dissertation.

You take all the drama studies core courses for the full three years, alongside film studies core courses.
