About BA Film and Portuguese

This course combines film with the study of Portuguese. It will suit those with an enquiring mind and a passion for exploring the culture of another country and society.

Portuguese is the seventh most widely spoken language in the world and is an official language in nine countries across four continents. The rise of the Brazilian and Angolan economies, and recent major sporting events in Brazil, mean that Portuguese speakers are increasingly in demand. This course offers a particularly strong intellectual challenge with a cosmopolitan perspective.

In our Department of Film and Television, guided by leading scholars and practitioners, you will explore the history of film and television, consider theoretical perspectives, appreciate how films are made and engage in practical film-making activities.

You will study film alongside Portuguese language, history and culture units, choosing from a wide range of options that allow you to pursue your own interests. Both departments offer a vibrant learning environment with research-led teaching.

You will spend your third year abroad on a work or study placement in a Portuguese-speaking country, refining your language skills and cultural understanding. You will return to Bristol for your final year, where you will have the chance to undertake a placement in the creative industries.
