Graduates of the BA Film Studies are well-versed in the history, theory, and analysis of cinema and related media, the industries and practices that underpin them, their aesthetics, style, and techniques, ther economics, politics, and sociology. This means that our graduates are adept at the analysis and interpretation of moving images in a world in which moving images shape our everyday lives and exert a powerful influence. Our graduates understand the societies that produce, and have produced moving images, their origins and their effects, whether entertaining or educating their audience. Our graduates examine the history, politics, and economics of film and media industries, the creative and professional environments in which films and media are made, and the systems through which they are distributed and shown to the public. Our graduates are also trained in written and oral argumentation, audio-visual presentation, and, in some cases, creative practice in digital video and sound.
Because of this, our graduates are suited to successful careers in a variety of fields including film and media production, distribution, and exhibition; arts and cultural management; public relations and advertising; journalism; education; civil service and government.
Every year, a significant proportion of our BA graduates go on to further study at Master's level, often continuing at King's and in our own department.
