The BA Film Studies and Linguistics course will enable students to study film from a range of historical and theoretical perspectives while delving into the unique human faculty of language. Students will learn through taught units and screenings that focus on both classical and contemporary films, covering a wide range of film cultures from around the world. Students will study both mainstream and non-mainstream films to broaden your understanding of the history of film, as well as the debates and issues that are informing and generated by current practice in film and shaping its future. Students will also develop an understanding of how film engages with socio-cultural and political concerns, placing the films they study in their historical context, as well as thinking about current debates and future challenges for cinema as a medium. Historical and theoretical approaches are emphasized in this course in studying film rather than practical production. This enables students to develop an independent critical thinking skill to work in a diverse range of assessment scenarios, taking in solo written assignments, presentations and, on certain units, group work and creative projects that allow them to put theory into practice.
