Film and Screen studies is one of four undergraduate degree programmes which together form the corpus of Film and Media based curricula at Bath Spa University. Based in Writing, Film and Digital Creativity in the College of Liberal Arts, the programme seeks to create graduates with an informed, critical and creative approach to film and screen media, and their role in contemporary society and culture. The first year of study introduces students to the histories and theories of film and television. Students are encouraged to watch, analyse and debate during these sessions, which are structured to create a nuanced understanding of the technological and narrative possibilities of film and screen media. In the second year, students are encouraged to engage with key debates on film and screen studies, e.g. spectatorship, stardom, and their relationship with broader cultural questions, such as gender, race and ideology. Modules focus on key movements in American, European and Asian film cultures, with reference to their historical, cultural, political, economic and industrial contexts. In the final year, students are encouraged to engage with specialised areas of study through a combination of taught and research based modules e.g. the dissertation, which is the core module for Level 6. Interdisciplinary approaches to film and screen studies is widely encouraged at this level, for example though modules on film and music, or film and video gaming.
