We want you to develop a critical understanding of film and screen theory and criticism and to appreciate the relationship between film, media and culture. But we also want to provide you with the conceptual tools for understanding how society and culture is mediated by cinematic, televisual and electronic images.
In choosing this course you’ll be starting on a journey of critical understanding of the institutions of film and screen production, distribution and exhibition. As part of this we’ll develop your understanding of reception and consumption practices in film and screen.
Film and Screen Studies aims to produce graduates who have an informed, critical and creative approach to both understanding film and screen in contemporary society and to their own forms of critical, reflective and communicative practice. You’ll develop intellectual, analytical, research and creative skills that will help you to prepare for employment and have the opportunity to engage in practical filmmaking projects if you wish.

In the first year there are two cores modules. The first is Introduction to Film in which you’ll investigate film as a specific academic discipline and how meaning is conveyed through film form and content. As part of your work you’ll analyse how films are constructed and be introduced to ways of writing effectively about film. The second core module is Understanding Hollywood, which offers an advanced investigation of key theoretical and methodological issues involved in the study of cinema, and explores film as a commercial, cultural and aesthetic institution.
Years two and three
In Years 2 and 3 you can design your programme from a range of exciting modules including film theory, Hollywood cinema, video games, film and national identity, stardom and celebrity, Asian cinema, European cinema, film genres such as westerns and horror, games, Short film production, and documentary filmmaking. You can also take part in organising LineUP, the annual Student Film Festival at Bath Spa University.
The main focus of interest for our Film and Screen Studies graduates is the creative and cultural industries in the UK. These industries include advertising, journalism, publishing, film and film-related employments, television, radio and the heritage sector. However, there are also employment opportunities in local and central government and the voluntary sector.
Since 2011, employers such as BBC Bristol, Argonon and The Sheffield International Documentary Festival have recruited graduates from this course. Students have also gone into roles including Unit Assistant, Festival Assistant and Film Location Manager.
