Film and Television Studies at University of Nottingham - UCAS

Course summary

Film and television are central to global culture. They entertain, inform, promote ideologies and help us communicate to and connect with other cultures. If you want to look at how they do this - and why - Film and Television Studies is for you. You'll explore:

  • their history and development
  • how audiences interact and respond
  • the practices and reach of screen industries
Your internationally recognised lecturers will help you develop the skills to think critically about, investigate and analyse film and television. Our optional video production module will give you a practical introduction to the skills needed to work behind (and in front of) the camera. Our Creative Student Network will also help you get to the heart of current media industries. It organises:
  • talks by leading practitioners
  • practical skills and CV writing workshops
  • opportunities to intern at global media organisations (such as Disney and the Art Directors Guild in Los Angeles, and Red Bee Creative in London)
Combine with another subject You can also combine Film and Television Studies with American Studies in our joint honours programme, or study alongside multiple disciplines in our BA Liberal Arts. Foundation Year This course is also available with a Foundation Year - aimed at developing potential and diversifying our recruitment.


In year one, you will engage in multidisciplinary activity in addition to core studies in film and television history, production cultures, the analysis of film texts and key critical perspectives, and the contexts of film and television consumption. Year two develops your understanding of key critical and theoretical approaches in the study of the production, circulation and cultural reception of film and television. Modules explore the ways film and television converge in the contemporary media landscape, the phenomena of transnational media flows and the social significance of the culture industries and issues of representation. You also have the opportunity to investigate practical media applications. Year three you will specialise in specific aspects of film and television studies by choosing from a range of advanced modules in film and television genres, global cinema and blockbusters, audience study and more! For students interested in practical filmmaking experience there is also an optional video production module. You will also produce an independent research dissertation under staff supervision. You may also spend time overseas through the University of Nottingham Study Abroad programme. Placement and volunteering opportunities are available in the School of Cultures, Languages and Area Studies, as well as via the Nottingham Advantage Award. Language modules can be taken for credit with our Language Centre. This course is also available with a Foundation Year.
