On BA Film and American Studies you will explore the art and business of Hollywood filmmaking within its wider cultural and creative contexts. You will study the historical and literary backdrops within which film developed in the United States, and have the opportunity to develop your studies in specialist modules looking at specific historical periods, filmic and literary genres and social and political issues. Some of these modules focus on particular filmmakers such as Stanley Kubrick and George Lucas, whilst others focus on genres such as Science Fiction or critical issues such gender in contemporary cinema and television.
A number of modules have been designed to bring the disciplines of Film Studies and American Studies together in productive dialogue, such as Films That Made Us American: the 1980s Through Movies and American Violence. A number of optional modules allow you to explore theory in a practical context by producing fiction and documentary films, television programmes and original and adapted screenplays.
