Film and Media Studies courses

Hull is one of few universities to incorporate digital and computer game design alongside film and TV. The structure of our degrees allows you to tailor your course to suit your own interests and specialisms. Film and Media is part of the School of The Arts, which sits in the Faculty of Arts, Cultures and Education.


Our film studies courses combine theory with the practical side of film-making. If media studies is more your thing, you can master your creative production skills while exporting the relationship between media and society.

Creativity lives and breathes at the University of Hull. Always has done, always will. It’s central to what universities do. But at Hull, we’re building something that goes far beyond our four walls.
