Film Studies with History BA (Hons)

Key information


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. Combining Film Studies with a minor in History gives you the flexibility to explore topics that best complement your major subject.

Programme in detail

Film Studies with History 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. We encourage you to become an independent learner, and support you through our dedicated library resources, including a wide variety of films from all periods and sources available for private study, e-learning initiatives and structured tasks outside the classroom.

In Year One, Semester 1 of your History minor, you choose either Religion, Politics and Society c.800 to c.1700 or Politics, Economy and Society in Europe, 1870-1939. In the second semester, you can choose between Britain since 1851: Democracy, War and Modernity, or Global History. In Year Two, you choose two modules from the same list of options as are available to single honours students. In Year Three, you are required to take a research-focused module.
