Overview

Our Film Studies programme is about cine-literacy: studying of popular movies, art cinema and experimental film; contemporary and historical, mainstream and alternative, international and domestic cinemas as a kind of literature. Our Film Studies programme, in this sense, is an extension to our English Literature programme, studying films as text, and exploring the cultural, political, personal contexts of the text’s creation.

We also explore the opportunities Film Studies opens by examining film marketing, distribution, exhibition, curating, festivals, film journalism and audience research.

Career opportunities

The Film Studies programme is designed around exposing students to a wide variety of employment options after a Film degree beyond being a filmmaker or reviewer specifically.

Through the programme’s core modules, employability opportunities are specifically identified and attendant skills developed. At Level 5, for example, the course team expand the student’s understanding of film-based employment options by directly addressing film cultures like festivals, programming special seasons, curetting, audience research, marketing, and distribution & exhibition contexts. Level 5 also has an optional Work Experience module which students may opt in for.

Level 6 enables students to explore more independently their own interests in further developing their employability options in two ways: potentially through their independent study projects and through the Film Reviewing module.

The course team work closely with employers – such as Flicks in the Sticks, Rural Media Company, Worcester Arts Workshop, and WorcesterLive, – to ensure that our programme is developing the right skills base that employers are looking for.
