Film and Screen Studies BA Welcome Pack
Welcome to Film and Screen Studies BA 2022.
Hello, and welcome to the new and exciting Film and Screen Studies BA (Hons) course at the University of Northampton. We believe that screen media plays a crucial part in our social, cultural, and economic lives. Screen media is not just entertainment: it’s the primary medium for storytelling, and for learning more about the world we live in and the people who live in it with us. To reflect this Film and Screen Studies is a dynamic and forward-facing programme of study that will give you the opportunity to explore the narrative, artistic, cultural, economic, and political implications of a wide range of diverse, global media. The modules on the course combine world class staff expertise with a contemporary and industry informed curriculum. In particular, the course will provide a space to think about the potential for screen texts to be a force for positive social change, and how representations on screen have the power to alter and effect people’s opinions and attitudes towards both historical and contemporary issues.
