You can study Film Studies as a joint honours degree with French (50% Film Studies and 50% French). Please read the course description for both subjects.
Our Film Studies degree combines critical and creative work and practice, depending on your interests and career plans. At Bangor, we are committed to teaching in small groups and to the majority of our modules being delivered through weekly workshops and seminars.
Lecturers who teach on the Film Studies degree have a range of interests including American Cinema, British and European film, Japanese and other world cinemas, gender, visual culture, film analysis, the body and film, film and history, digital technology and film, scriptwriting and screenwriting, film-making, media and film in Wales, acting and performing, language and film, blogging and podcasting, computer games and film, film stars and film on television. Our Film Studies lecturers have recently written books and articles on topics such as Cult Film, American Culture and Film, Cinema and Medicine, Jewish Film, Surrealist Film, Cinema and Landscape, Australian Film, and the new technologies of film viewing.
The BA (Hons) in French will give you advanced skills in the French language, and a broad range of specialised and detailed insights into the culture, society and history that go with it. The course has language at the heart of it, with core modules developing the key oral, aural and written skills every year. These modules also foster cultural awareness, which you will need for your year abroad, and later on, for the world of work. Doing single honours will also allow you to follow a full range of options, which will equip you with extensive knowledge of the heritage and life of the modern French nation, and awareness of the wider Francophone world, at a level which will allow you to consider postgraduate study.
