Description

The BA Film and History degree is an innovative degree programme combining these two interlinking subjects, offering opportunities for practical experience in film-making and archival research.

This degree allows you to explore world history alongside the history of film, reflecting on how historical events have been recorded and reconstructed through visual media.

You’ll be able to choose from a wide range of options across the two subjects, covering topics from Anglo-Saxon England to the Cold War, film noir to international animation.

Specially-designed modules bring your two degree subjects into dynamic dialogue, examining areas such as propaganda and documentary. You’ll also have access to resources like our on-campus television studio and the unique holdings at the East Anglian Film Archive.

Students develop many transferable skills on this degree, including high-level research and communication skills, team working, and self-management, all of which open up a wide variety of careers.

Your degree in Film and History begins with a year of compulsory modules designed to give you a broad understanding of the scholarly connections between the fields of Film Studies and History.

As your degree progresses, you will have more optional modules, allowing you to build a degree that suits your aims and aspirations while attaining a deep understanding of both subjects. The final year also contains a dissertation, which is a project about film and history that you get to design.

Across your degree, you will take part in screenings, lectures, seminars, practical workshop sessions and tutorials to help you learn a range of skills and get ready for a wide range of possible careers.

You will also have a Personal Advisor, an academic staff member who can give you specific advice about the modules you choose, give you pastoral support, and help you with careers advice.
