Name: Angus
Location: Scotland
Course: Film Studies
Grades: National 5 (only important ones) - A in both Maths and English. Highers in 5th Year - BBCC in English, French, Human Biology, and Maths, respectively. Highers currently sitting in 6th year - Media, Classics, History and RMPS.

Question
In regards to combined degrees, how exactly do they work? Sounds like a silly question, but when I was reading the prospectus, and the online degree page, I just couldn't wrap my head around it. The reason I'm interested in a combined degree (and this may just be because of my indecisiveness), is because I'm still not 100% sure if film studies is for me. Ideally, the degree would help towards becoming a Film Critic, however, there are still so many other subjects which fascinate me (philosophy, psychology, classics, to name a few). Any help or advice would be very much appreciated.

-Thanks

Hi!

Ok, so it's like this.

In Years One and Two, you do 6 modules per year (3 per semester). 2 or 3 from your chosen degree (so, for example, year One Film Studies, there are no compulsory modules, but they highly recommend you take HU11001 Human Futures (Highly Recommended), EN11003 Reading the Screen: An Introduction to Film Studies and EN12005 Perspectives and Movements in Cinema) with one per semester.

So, let's say you do Reading the Screen in semester one and Perspectives and Movements in semester 2. That leaves 4 more module choices left, 2 per semester. This means you can now choose from a wide range of subjects to fill out the choices. The uni recommends you do them in 2s. For example, my named degree is Politics, but in 2nd year (I skipped first year), I also did modules in History, English and Film Studies, and my modules went like this:

semester 1:

compulsory comparative politics module
first world war perspectives (history module)
reading the screen (film studies)

semester 2:

International Relations (compulsory for politics)
Devolution module (an optional politics module)
Romantic to Victorian Literature (English module)

The beauty is that in second year, you can do up to 2 1st year modules. Hence why in second year, I did the Reading the Screen module, which is advertised as a first year module. By the end of second year you then basically choose what your degree is, and in 3rd and 4th year you do modules only in that subject. Like now, all I do is Politics modules.

For Film Studies/English, these links might help:

Location: Massachusetts, USA
Course: Illustration

In the spring I completed my freshman year at MassArt in Boston, but it wasn't for me. I have been to Scotland quite a few times and I love it so much that I decided I would transfer. Dundee Uni is my first choice and I an applying directly into the Illustration course. If anyone has advice on the application process or putting together a portfolio, I would love to hear it - I am finding that applying to universities in the UK is much different than in the US. Hope to see you all next fall!
