The Film Studies (Hons) (Joint Honours) course at De Montfort University links the criticism and history of film to the core concerns of a range of other subjects, including Creative Writing, English, Journalism, or Media and Communication. If you are fascinated by film but want to combine your passion with another area of study through a carefully designed joint programme, the Joint Honours route is the perfect choice.
Modules in Film Studies will introduce you to studies of global film history, the new Hollywood, film and TV genres, Disney, contemporary British cinema, cult film, film exhibition and consumption and the past on screen. As a Joint Honours student, you can choose to complete your dissertation in Film Studies or your other subject.
Taught by world-class scholars based in our prestigious Cinema and Television History Research Institute, the teaching team is made up of widely-published academics, film journalists, filmmakers and industry professionals. The course will be delivered with a mix of lectures, film screenings, small group discussions, group and practice-led projects, individual tutorials and private study.
The course provides a broad grounding in film history, criticism, practice and industry skills, and will equip you to pursue a variety of careers in the film and cultural industries or beyond.
Our graduates have gone on to work for leading companies and organisations such as BBC Films, BBC Sport, Odeon Entertainment and Secret Cinema. They work in film and television roles such as production staff and researchers, writers, public relations writers and executives, print and online film journalists for magazines such as Little White Lies, independent filmmakers and camera-people, commercial managers.
You may also choose to progress on to further postgraduate study and pursue a career in academia, teaching, or research.
