Is film a good degree to take in uni?

Hi @twenty18,
I graduated a BA Film Production degree last year from the University of Wolverhampton, I managed to fortunately apply and succeed for a social media and content creation graduate internship opportunity and have now used my transferable skills in this role where I film and edit content daily.
I have now got the skills in marketing where I could pursue a career down this path, if I so choose. My point is that the transferrable skills that I learnt in my film production under graduate degree meant I was an ideal fit for this role so if you want to pursue the marketing specific career path, your film degree will set you up nicely for this.
I have also been submitting my films that I made in my final year of university into film festivals and I have had some success in being selected for the festival and nominated for awards.
The degree was predominantly practical based with a few theory based modules, all aiding in me gaining a greater understanding in filmmaking theory, techniques and practises that I can use in any type of content I film now.
I also gained knowledge in all aspects of filmmaking, filling every possible role within a crew on a number of occasions. Not to forget, the Screen School recently opened up at University of Wolverhampton meaning you would be getting access to incredible equipment, perfect for narrative film sets, documentary interview sets, live multi-cam broadcasts or music videos etc.

Have a look through this if you think you would be interested: https://www.wlv.ac.uk/courses/ba-hons-film-production/

I hope this helps you!
Kind regards,
