University of Leeds: Film Studies

Institution University of Leeds
Department School of Languages, Cultures and Societies
Study type Taught


This course combines the theory and history of cinema with the study of the industry and craft of filmmaking, and gives you the opportunity to explore your interests in the history of film, global cinema, and contemporary film and its key role in modern society.

Through the core module (Film Arts and Industries), you’ll be acquainted with the theoretical, historical and cultural approaches to the medium of film and institution of cinema, and you’ll investigate the variety of skills and activities around film as an art, as well as cinema as an industry.

The independent project will allow you to specialise in your own interests in a way that will serve your intellectual and creative aspirations and career goals. Working with a specialist academic, you can choose to write a dissertation based on research into a film/cinema topic, or you can choose to combine a shorter dissertation with a creative or practice-based activity appropriate to your interests and skills.
