Film Studies

University of St Andrews

Content

Film Studies at St Andrews is defined by a particular focus on film cultures, examining the multiple sites and practices (institutions, audience networks, activist campaigns, media technologies, etc) that contribute to the meanings and social functions film can assume across different times and geographical locations. As a film student, you will study both canonical films and marginal practices with attention to the multiple configurations of historical film cultures and the changing shape of Film Studies as a discipline today.

Studying film at St Andrews will help you master a range of research skills and acquire knowledge related to national and transnational film traditions, the dynamics of the global film industry, the history of film technologies and modes of film spectatorship, and the current range of theoretical and historiographical approaches to film and media.
