In addition, you take modules in French or German literature, history, politics and society, and/or linguistics.

    Year two

    You deepen your understanding of key critical and theoretical approaches in the study of the production, circulation and cultural reception of film and television. Modules explore the way in which film and television converge in the contemporary media landscape, explore the phenomenon of transnational media flows, and consider the social significance of the culture industries and issues of representation. Your German or French language skills will be consolidated.

    Year Three
