About

Studied alongside your Film Studies with Modern Languages (Hons) degree from De Montfort University, this course is ideal for students who dropped languages at school after year nine or GCSEs, or for those who have no background in languages. In both cases, the pathway offers you an essential skill for success in the global job market.

Competence in another language has become an essential skill for success in the global job market. By combining your study of Film Studies with a language, you will develop not only competence in the language itself, but will also enhance your employability; a language distinguishes you from other graduates. 

You will take a 30-credit beginners’ or post-GSCE module in your chosen language which will equate to two hours of language classes plus one hour of cultural studies per week, learning about the main country/ies associated with your chosen language, its culture and history, and its people.

Graduate Careers

The course provides a broad grounding in film history, criticism, practice and industry skills. On graduation, you may use the skills you have gained to pursue a variety of careers in the film and cultural industries or beyond, or go on to study or research at postgraduate level.
