Overview Studied in combination, Film Studies and Media & Culture enable you to explore the history and impact of arguably the defining creative and communications media of our times. Both subject areas provide you with opportunities to benefit from your lecturers' cutting edge research in aspects of film, media and culture - from the cultural meaning of zombie cinema, to development of the British crime film, to 'green' computer games and popular music. Both subject areas also provide you with opportunities for work placements and volunteering. If you are interested in cinema as part of our contemporary culture of communication, and in the ways that media communication at once reflect and shape today's world, then Film Studies and Media & Culture in combination may be an ideal programme of study for you.
