Film studies

Modern languages

This course allows you to study Film jointly with a language (Chinese, French, German, Italian or Spanish) which can be studied from beginners or advanced level. You will develop written and oral skills and learn about cultural aspects related to the chosen language. Film study combines critical and creative work and practice (e.g. digital technology, scriptwriting, podcasting, computer games). This course will equip you with practical, linguistic and transferable skills - making you a multilingual and employable global citizen.

All language modules include written skills (e.g. translation and essay writing) and oral skills taught by a native speaker.

Optional modules available in Modern Languages allow you to gain insight into the cinema, literature, history, and culture of the country whose language you are studying.

Within Film Studies, you will have the opportunity to examine the discipline from a theoretical and practical perspective. This will involve learning about film theory and also film making techniques. The range of modules on offer means you will be able to develop and explore your own interests.

There are also extra-curricular activities that will both boost your subject knowledge and allow you to get to know your fellow students. These include cultural and social events organised by student-run societies in the academic departments. In addition, Pontio – Bangor University’s Arts and Innovation Centre – means that there will be a range of plays, films and other performances only a short walk away from where many of your classes will be taking place.

‘Placement Year’ and 'International Experience Year’ options are available for this course. You will have the opportunity to fully consider these options when you have started your course at Bangor and can make an application for a transfer onto such a pathway at the appropriate time. You can find more information about these options on our website and if you have any questions, please get in touch.

If you don’t have the required qualifications for this degree-level course or are looking to re-enter education after time away from study, then a Foundation Year Programme might be the right choice for you. Please see Modern Languages (with Foundation Year) R808 or Media Studies and Production (with Foundation Year) P31F.

This is a broad subject for a variety of European languages. No matter which you take, the general theme is that some graduates go to that country to work, often as English language teachers, some go into further study, often to train as teachers or translators, but most get jobs in the UK in education - most often as language tutors, unsurprisingly, or translators. Modern language grads can also be in demand in business roles where communication and language skills are particularly useful, such as marketing and PR, and in finance or law. But remember — whilst employers say they rate graduates who have graduates who have more than one language, you need to have them as part of a whole package of good skills.

What about your long term prospects?
