Clifton campus, Placements

This joint honours degree course combines the study of film with French. It will suit you if you have an enquiring mind and a passion for exploring the culture of another country and society. Both departments offer a vibrant learning environment with research-led teaching. French is available from beginners' level and post-A level (or equivalent).

French is the first language of millions of speakers around the world and francophone countries offer diverse and stimulating cultures for study.

In the Department of Film and Television, guided by leading scholars and practitioners, you will explore the history, criticism and contexts of film and television. You will consider theoretical perspectives, appreciate how films are made, and engage in creative work such as practical filmmaking activities.

You will study film alongside French language, history and culture units, choosing from a wide range of options that allow you to pursue your own interests.

You will spend your third year abroad on a study of work placement in a French-speaking country, refining your language skills and cultural understanding. To find out more about studying abroad, visit Global Opportunities.

You will return to Bristol for your final year, where you will have the chance to undertake a range of guided project work, including a placement in the creative industries.
