Overview

THIS STREAM IS FOR STUDENTS COMMENCING FROM 2016.

The Film Studies minor stream will provide you with the critical and conceptual skills to analyse and interpret the most popular art form of the 20th and 21st centuries. Film Studies courses available in the minor stream include historical, theoretical, and cross-cultural studies of film as well as introductory courses in video production and screenwriting. Our Film Studies minor stream allows you to explore the discipline and in doing so you will gain an understanding of the intersections between popular entertainment, politics and aesthetics. Our courses enable you to study film and related media forms in their historical, cultural, and technological contexts and provide you with an international perspective on the place and history of film in the global media landscape.
