One of the longest-established and most prestigious degrees of its kind in the country, our BA in Film and Television Studies will provide you with an opportunity to explore these two hugely influential mass media art forms in depth. Your degree will be focused on those cult hits and global franchises that define the market today. 
In your first year, you’ll cover all the essentials in the subject gaining a grounding in key theoretical and historical debates. In your second and third years, you’ll choose from a wide array of modules, enabling you to specialise in the areas that interest you the most. These range from explorations of the earliest experiments in moving pictures to contextualizing modern multimedia franchises.

You’ll also get to choose from creative practice options in areas such as making short films and working in TV studio production, deepening your knowledge of how film and television texts are produced by applying your critical skills to practical outcomes.

You’ll develop many transferable skills on this degree course, including high-level research and communication skills, team working, leadership, and self-management, all of which are desirable transferable skills that open up a wide variety of careers.
