BA ART AND FILM & THEATRE WW41

Full Time: 4 Years
Bring together your individual practice with studies in film and theatre with BA Art and Film and Theatre. Let your knowledge and skills in all three disciplines feed into one another to produce highly personal and individual work. 
This joint Art degree enables you to develop a critical understanding of contemporary art, film and modern theatre. You will have the opportunity to complement your art practice with elements of practical work in film and theatre.
You will join a lively community and explore a vast range of media and experiment with emerging art forms. Alongside your practical art you will study contemporary art theory and the history of art. You will receive a dedicated studio space, accessible 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, and a studio tutor to help develop your individual and professional practice.
Your teaching staff are all artists, curators and researchers of international standing and will encourage regular exhibitions and open debate. Trips to museums and art galleries will help prompt thoughts on how art is displayed and received. You will gain professional experience by taking part in your own exhibitions, public art commissions and events.
In film and theatre you can choose from a range of modules covering world cinema, avant-garde and experimental film-making, or the cinema of classical and contemporary Hollywood, such as musicals, melodrama, action cinema and the films of Alfred Hitchcock; study theatre from the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, covering the work of playwrights such as Samuel Beckett, Caryl Churchill and Sarah Kane; together with a range of practices from verbatim to immersive, from site specific work to digital technology in performance; and investigate television from soap opera to sitcom to sci-fi.
Practical work complements your critical and theoretical study allowing you to apply what you learn through practice – drawing on the market-leading facilities of the £11.4-million Minghella Studios, including a film and television studio, cutting rooms and audio post-production facilities, three theatre spaces, and a digital cinema
Placements and collaborations are actively encouraged and there is also the chance to experience life in another country by studying abroad. Opportunities for work-based learning and personal development complement your core learning.
