Film Studies


Film Studies

UCL was the first university in the UK to establish a Film Studies Programme. Each year, we welcome students from all over the world, who spend a year amongst a thriving, cross-disciplinary community of cinema scholars and research students. We have particular research strengths in cinema history, film theory, and in an exceptionally broad range of national and regional cinemas. Our core faculty utilize a wide array of theoretical approaches to screen media in the classroom and in their research: from film theory and political economy to cultural studies and media infrastructural studies. Our teaching draws from a variety of disciplines in UCL and, because of this comprehensive curriculum, we offer modules in cinemas from Europe, North America, Asia, Africa and Latin America. The Film Studies programme is housed within the Centre for Multidisciplinary and Intercultural Inquiry (CMII), and draw on interdisciplinary, intercultural, and international thinking to explore the histories and forms of moving image material from across the globe.
