Film as both a means of socio-political communication and as a form of entertainment is a highly influential art form.
Film Studies at Keele is a theoretical degree programme in which you analyse and investigate the possibilities of film, as well as its influence on our understanding of history, the present and the future. You’ll learn how film functions within society, how it explores individual, national, sexual and racial identities, and how it has developed over time and across cultures. This is a broad and challenging discipline, involving the rigorous and critical study of films from around the world. You might choose to focus on your own particular interests, such as film directors, international cinemas, film cultures or film genres.
