About this course

Study the history, influence and the many genres of film, from Hollywood to Europe, and world cinema with our Film and French degree. You'll look at the cultural context of the various styles and movements, and the work of key filmmakers. You'll explore the language, culture and politics of France and can study French films across all genres.

On this joint course at Southampton, you'll study Film from a variety of perspectives: as popular art, big business and as a cultural record. You'll look at familiar classics alongside modern cinema, and genres including:

  • film noir

  • horror

  • science fiction

  • documentary

  • animation

You'll take French language modules based on your ability, and will spend your third year in a French-speaking country. Your year abroad will improve your language and linguistic skills.

As part of your undergraduate study you can:

  • take modules to learn more about French history and culture

  • discover early film through archive visits

  • use our Centre for Language Study, including a dedicated French resources room

  • take modules in urban culture and ethnography
