Film Studies at University of Greenwich combines theory and practice in the study and creation of film and audiovisual media. The programme is built on a carefully selected set of courses that introduce you to ways of reading and understanding the history and theory of film, the production of motion pictures and the experience of those who work in the industry.
As a student, you will develop scholarship and autonomy of intellect, including the ability to research, analyse and write about film and related subjects in a variety of styles. You will also develop skills related to storytelling and practices of representation in audiovisual media, alongside the ability to reflect on your own learning and creative practice. Through film theory, film history and the critical study of film you will develop writing, research and presentation skills. Artistic and technical skills include screenwriting, storyboarding, camerawork, photography, sound recording and editing. Through independent research and creative projects you will develop teamwork, project management, working to brief and deadline, and related professional and personal skills.
Purpose-built recording studios and editing suites are used by students on the programme. Students are trained in the use of professional-grade equipment, alongside the artistic and technical principles for its use.
This degree opens a wide range of opportunities in industry, public service and teaching. Graduates have gone on to roles in film and TV development, production and post-production. With a broad training in visual culture and media-production, alumni of the programme can be found in marketing and advertising, communications-roles in industry, as well as in teaching, government and postgraduate study.
