I know it may be obvious but I was wondering what the main difference between the two are, thanks

Film studies - you study films.

Film production - you produce films, but can also include some academic study of films.

I'm guessing film studies is looking more into genres, actors and what films are about whereas you are learning how to create films and effects in film production.

Both are not overly useful if you want to get into the film business.

You're welcome.

Film Studies is more about films, watching/analysing/studying them.

Film Production is focussed on producing/making films. However, some are more practical than others, so if you want to do this as a career, you need to look carefully at the courses to make sure you will gain some useful practical experience.

Edit: Sorry, I hadn't realised how old this thread is.

That would be a specific company name - see what they call themselves on their website

This thread is asking about the difference between differently titled university degrees.

What sort of job do you want to do?

If you want to get into a role that requires experience with industry standard equipment or a showreel then a good film production degree is worthwhile - and if you don’t know enough about the industry to know what job you want then a good film production degree would give you more opportunities to explore different roles and build your experience. Not all film production courses will have industry standard kit or links to industry. There’s also different routes in to some film roles.
