Overview

This Film Studies course explores American and European cinema, global perspectives on film and investigates the history, traditions, genres, audiences and thematic studies.

Film Studies at Winchester examines film from mainstream filmmaking to various alternative practices, covering both fiction and documentary traditions. It includes American, European and global perspectives on film, whilst investigating history, genres, audiences and thematic studies. Students may also undertake practical film work such as video production and screenwriting.

Programme structure

Year 1 is foundational and involves mandatory modules that introduce students to ideas and ways of working to enable them to begin to develop an understanding of the diversity of film studies and cinema itself.

Study during Year 2 is more specialised and there are some mandatory modules that focus study on theoretical and research skills. However, the majority of study in Years 2 and 3 involves optional modules that allow students to choose and focus their study on areas that interest them.

Study during Year 3 offers greater scope for more in-depth study and further specialisation. With the exception of the Dissertation, module choices during the third year are entirely optional.

Within this structure of options, students may specialise in particular areas of film or choose to take modules that reflect the wide range of film forms and traditions that exist. For example, students may specialise in theoretical studies of film or focus on the development of national cinemas. There are also modules in practical film techniques.
