UK Film Studies Degrees

Introduction to Film Studies

A Film Studies degree looks at the theoretical, historical and critical approaches to film and explores the narrative, artistic, cultural, economic, and political implications of cinema. Students will spend time reading and writing about all types of film, discussing meaning and importance and the role of the audience, while also learning about the roles of producers, directors, screenwriters and actors. Hollywood, independent and experimental cinema will be covered.

 My consultant was very helpful and motivating. She helped me every step of the way, even when the deadline was so close. I feel I could not have done it without her. I'd highly recommend this service to any and all of my many friends interested.
