As both a medium of mass entertainment and a mode of expression, film is a powerful art form. Studying Film at Keele provides insight into its forms, technologies and cultural importance, both historically and now. Film Studies is an exciting, diverse and creative area of academic study. Studying Film at Keele offers you the chance to focus intensively on the history and theory of the medium, or to study it alongside Creative Writing as an integrated single honours programme. You can also combine the study of Film with other related subjects, such as Media and English Literature. You will have the opportunity to apply your theory of film in the form of practical work, developing scriptwriting and filmmaking skills. Taking a Film Studies degree at Keele also offers you the opportunity to learn a language, study abroad for a semester or a year, and do a work placement through one of our exciting local partnerships. As a Film student at Keele, then, you will learn to employ theoretical, historical and cultural strands of enquiry to analyse both classical and contemporary cinema, as well as making creative connections between Film and other art forms, such as literature and photography.
