This Joint Honors course covers the history and critical framework of film production and consumption from the 1890s to the present day. In addition, students engage with the development of digital media, alongside modules designed to encourage a critically informed creative practice. Lectures, seminars and practice-based classes are combined with film screenings to provide students with a starting point for further investigation. At every stage of their study students are supported in developing the critical, creative, and presentational skills necessary to succeed in the current workplace and/or to proceed to further study. Assessment by a combination of coursework and participation contributes to this process. Please use the link above to find more detailed information on the course.
