About

Film – how it’s written, promoted, distributed, exhibited, analysed and enjoyed – will be central to your studies on this Cinema (Hons) degree at University of South Wales. You will analyse and debate the forms and functions of film and cinema, develop your creative writing skills in screenwriting modules, and position yourself as a ‘cinema creative’.

Overview

This Cinema (Hons) degree offered by University of South Wales is taught in the heart of Cardiff, a city with a thriving film and TV industry. It’s home to Pinewood Studio Wales and it’s where the BBC films many of its drama shows, including Doctor Who and Sherlock.

You’ll study alongside filmmakers from our new Film and TV School Wales, and benefit from industry events on and off campus such as talks by filmmakers and industry professionals and visits to studios and festivals.

What you will study

In Year One, you will develop the skills to analyse and debate film and cinema. You will practice your creative writing skills in screenwriting, reflect on the industry and your role in it, and begin to develop as a ‘cinema creative’ through a diverse portfolio of written, oral and audio-visual work.

In Year Two, you will explore local, national and global production and exhibition, as well as develop your screenwriting skills further. A placement in the second semester, in conjunction with Film Hub Wales, is an important part this year. You will work supporting an arts venue or cultural event and responsibilities may include research, marketing, programming or education. This will be an excellent opportunity to broaden your knowledge of film and media, as well as gain valuable skills for employment.

Year Three allows you to study advanced modules in theory and practice, and studies in audiences and fandom will further your knowledge in the exhibition sector. You will also complete a final major project in screenwriting or analysis, and curate your own cinema event.

Careers

This cinema and film degree will give you valuable training in communication, and the wide range of skills taught may prepare students for careers in screenwriting, journalism, exhibition, research and education.
