Course Introduction

Develop your passion for film while exploring Russian language and culture in depth.

Our Film Studies and Russian degree enables you to pursue an understanding of film within the context of a wider knowledge of Russian language and culture. No prior knowledge of Russian is required.

Film Studies fosters an understanding of visual aesthetics and leads students into areas of study as diverse as history, politics, philosophy, technology and performance. You’ll study the history and theory of cinema and have the opportunity to write your own film script.

Studying Russian means engaging deeply with learning a new language, which you will study in conjunction with an exploration of Russia’s culture, society, and history. You will develop a sophisticated understanding of the way Russians think and feel, and of the cultural references that shape their identities.

You’ll spend your third year studying or working in Russia or Latvia, immersing yourself in the language and culture of your destination.
