Films have been vital cultural outputs for over one hundred years. The context in which they are produced and distributed is constantly changing but their importance as documents of our times remains, as does the pleasure they give to audiences across the world and their potential influence on the way those audiences may see the world. 

The combination of Film Studies and Classical Studies gives you the opportunity to complement your Film Studies major with a programme focusing on key literary genres and how they relate to the societies that produced them.

Programme in detail

Film Studies with Classical Studies at Liverpool offers you the chance to study with recognised scholars of film cultures and industries around the world, offering a wide-ranging and sophisticated academic programme in this critical field. Our students have an interest in world cultures and a desire to fully appreciate the ways in which these cultures have expressed themselves through film.

Your minor in Classical Studies introduces two key modules in Greek and Roman literature in Year One, giving you a solid introduction to key issues in Graeco-Roman society and culture, developing the skills you will require for later in-depth study in Years Two and Three. Year Two focuses on major aspects of Greek and Roman culture and society, and Year Three optional modules centre on key figures, genres and themes to continue the development of skills, depth and focus.
