University of Huddersfield Film Studies

This course offers you the opportunity to combine the study of two highly compatible and significant subject areas: Film and Drama. The programme allows you to choose from a range of core and optional modules which provide a rigorous and varied foundation with which to progress to more advanced and specialised study in both subjects as part of the degree programme. Studying film, you’ll explore a diverse range of cinematic forms, from popular Hollywood to avant-garde film and from silent cinema to the moving image in a digital age. You’ll also be introduced to national cinemas; individual filmmakers; adaptation; the relationship between film, literature and drama and the key roles played by screenwriting, music and performance in the production of film. There’s also a chance to put theory into practice in our documentary film-making modules. Drama combines theory and practice with opportunities to perform in front of live audiences. The focus is on helping you to develop your own individual style and supporting you to produce intelligent, thoughtful and innovative work. You’ll have the opportunity to explore practical skills such as actor training, performance making, directing, applied theatre, writing and technical theatre and including stage management.
