From broadcast journalism to the arts and events, this course focuses on the study of film and its variety of uses, and challenges you to see far beyond just the viewing experience.

The BA Film Studies (Hons) from De Montfort University provides a broad grounding in film history, criticism, practice and industry skills. Students may pursue a variety of careers in the film and cultural industries.
Over the past five years, graduates have gone on to work for employers such as BBC Films, BBC Sport, Film4 and Odeon Entertainment. They’ve also gone on to work in roles as film and television production staff and researchers, writers for film news media, public relations writers and executives, film journalists, independent film-makers, camera people, and commercial managers.
Other students have gone on to work as teachers and academics, or pursued careers in PR, banking, finance and other fields. Film Studies is also ideal preparation for further study, with our postgraduate options including the International Film Production MA.
