Overview

Joint honours degrees provide you with the maximum flexibility to study subject areas that really interest you. This gives you the opportunity to study your two favourite subjects within one degree course.
Our course combinations are designed so that what you learn in one subject will complement and enhance what you learn in the other. In your final year you can choose either to split your time evenly between your two subjects, or to specialise in one subject.

Film & TV

You’ll learn about the film and television industries, as well as other factors that shape the movies and shows you see on screen. The course will build your understanding of how films and TV programmes work, how we make sense of them and how they convey meaning. You’ll also learn about their audiences, and explore how they function in the age of global corporations and digital media.

As a Film and TV student at NTU, you’ll experience our unique slant on this fascinating area. Our diverse choice of modules not only explore fundamental approaches and innovative thinking within film and television study, but also allow you to pursue your own specialist interests.

We stand out for the range of cultures our course covers, and for the opportunity we bring you to study European cinema in depth, with modules available during each year of your degree. As well as their specialist knowledge, our staff bring a real enthusiasm and commitment to their teaching.

This course is taught by a team of eminent researchers. In the latest Research Excellence Framework (REF, 2014) 70% of our Communication, Culture and Media research was assessed as world leading or internationally excellent. For you, this means that the course is informed by the latest thinking and you will learn from people with a real passion for their subject.

History

Studying History at NTU is not a passive armchair activity but demands:

youth
crime
gender
religion
international and urban studies
dictatorship and democracy
warfare and reconstruction.
A wide range of options places the emphasis on student choice, enabling you to study in-depth specialist areas. These include:

The Crusades
Nazi Germany
Aztec and Inca civilisations
American and British history.

Programme structure

How will I learn?
Each year students choose a range of core and optional modules from the lists above. The first year is normally divided equally between the two joint honours subjects but at the end of Year One, students have the opportunity to select between an equally weighted joint honours course and a more specialised pathway depending on their interests.

Teaching principally takes place through a combination of:

lectures (where tutors introduce the key ideas)
seminars (organised on the basis of smaller group discussion of those ideas).

Career opportunities
