The Film Studies programme is based in DMU’s prestigious centre for the study of Cinema and Television History. The teaching team is made up of widely published academics, film journalists, filmmakers and industry professionals, and you will become part of a vibrant film culture at the university.
On a day-to-day level the course is taught using a mix of lectures, screenings, small-group discussions, group projects, individual tutorials and private study. Assessment includes essays, research reports, edited collections, creative work, presentations and film reviews.
Each year’s 30-credit language module focuses on language competence/skills classes (two hours per week) and a weekly ‘cultural awareness’ class (one hour) learning about the history, culture and people, institutions, politics and literature of the main country/ies that speak your chosen language. In the final year there may be an opportunity to study language for specific purposes, e.g. languages for business.
Our languages pathway gives you the opportunity to study abroad between Years two and three of your degree studies. The experience of living in a different culture and practising your language skills in the real world will broaden your life experience and, again, enhance your employability. It’s an opportunity to make useful contacts as well as adding to your CV.
