We do not offer an undergraduate degree programme. However, our Introduction to European Cinema course is open to second year undergraduate students as a 20-credit option course.
The Introduction to European Cinema course is a 20-credit option course open to all second year students. With its programme of lectures, its tutorials and screenings at the Film House and on campus, it is a wonderful introduction to the study of film.
This course aims to give students a historical and theoretical introduction to the study of film particularly in relation to the main European national and international cinemas.
It will present the development of film in Europe from its beginnings to the present - without, however, attempting a full continuous narrative history - together with an introduction to the spectrum of critical reaction and aesthetic evaluation that has accompanied the medium throughout its existence.
"Introduction to European Cinema" is open to postgraduate students wishing to audit the lectures and attend the screenings at the Filmhouse theatre to supplement the classes on the Masters in Film Studies programme.
