Overview

The first year of study guides you through the specialised language used in the analysis of film and approaches to studying film as a visual and aural art form. It familiarises you with the most important movements and moments in cinema history, introduces you to key concepts and theories, and engages with the cross-cultural and transnational exchanges between world cinemas.

We use a variety of learning and teaching methods including lectures, seminars, screenings, student study groups, web and IT resources. All our modules centre the learning experience on seminars, involving groups of between 10 and 20 students, typically running for two hours. 

Many modules are supported by weekly 50-minute lectures. Students often prepare for seminars by getting involved with student study groups, which encourage collaboration and team working. You can also attend our ‘Creative Dialogues’ lecture series, which hosts internationally acclaimed actors, directors and film critics.
