Our unique Film and Visual Culture programme combines close analysis of visual objects and artefacts – analogue and digital, moving and still, underground and mainstream – with theories of visual representation, production and circulation. You’ll gain specialist knowledge and skills in the academic study of cinema, with an emphasis on building analytical skills in research and critical writing. You’ll also have the opportunity to develop skills in digital video production and web design.
Aberdeen is one of the most dynamic place to study and research the Spanish language and the cultural frameworks in countries where it is spoken. You’ll be equipped with the skills to communicate in a global language, spoken by 350 million native Spanish speakers in 19 Latin American states, Spain, and increasingly in the US. You’ll also study historical, literary and cultural texts, films and visual culture.
As an integral part of your 5-year programme you will spend the whole of year three taking your language and cultural skills to a very high level as a teaching assistant or visiting student in a Spanish-speaking country. You’ll graduate well prepared for a career in the creative arts, new media, journalism, or teaching, and with the international dimension opening opportunities in business, tourism and many other options.
