Film Studies

Film studies today, based on its roots in the study of feature films made for and experienced in the cinema, analyse all forms of media based on, or by using, audio-visual storytelling. That is what we mean by film.

The Introductory course in Film Studies begins with two intensive basic modules, one analytical and one historical. These are followed by two thematic modules. The first deals with the conditions for film in Sweden today, the second deals with how, where and when we experience film.

The Intermediate course begins with a module on film theory which gives an overview of the history of film theory, as well as a thematic specialization. After that a practical course in the art of writing critical film analysis follows. The last two modules deal with film's relations to other art forms and media, both in form of historical and contemporary case studies and a creative-analytical project.

The Bachelor of Art’s course, which in addition to Introductory and Intermediate courses requires an additional year of study, deepens the analytical skills in Film Studies and ends with an independent degree project.
