History with Film Studies

Film has been one of the most important influences on modern society. Since it was invented, cinema has entertained mass audiences all over the world. It has provided the dominant images of modern culture, it has created new art forms, and has been a crucial tool of education and propaganda. Our History with Film Studies degree allows you to examine the medium of film, and to practise film production, while setting this work in a solid historical context. Through the History with Film Studies degree programme, you can examine such questions as how cinema has affected the development of modern societies, and how film should be used as historical evidence. You will also have plenty of opportunity to take 'mainstream' History modules covering all periods as well as to study topics such as film theory, film production, and creative writing for film.

When making your decision about what you might want to study at Bangor, you should bear in mind that you could choose to read for a degree not only in History with Film Studies but also in History; Welsh History; History with Archaeology; Heritage, Archaeology and History; History with Journalism; History with Film Studies; and joint degrees including History such as History and English.

Some modules are available in Welsh. You may write essays and examinations in Welsh if you wish.
