  • BA (Hons), Full-time , Duration: 3 Years
Course Summary:
What do we mean by ‘culture’ and why are its many forms so hotly contested? Why is it so important to our sense of identity and belonging? Cultural Studies at Kent is an innovative subject with distinctive perspectives on all forms of present day culture. We explore connections between popular culture, the arts and everyday life by crossing social sciences/humanities boundaries. Film at Kent engages with cinema’s rich scope and history, from silent classics and mainstream Hollywood to world cinema and the avant-garde. We have a thriving film culture, with the Gulbenkian Cinema (the regional art cinema) based on campus and a lively student film society. Discussions of film arise across a wide range of topics in Cultural Studies. This programme gives you access to Film modules not available on other Cultural Studies programmes; this will widen your understanding of film, the history of cinema and the perspectives of specific directors and genres.
Application deadline details:

Canterbury is a great place for students, with loads of us about. There are a huge range of students from all over the world here, and everyone is really welcoming and friendly. The streets are beautiful, there are loads of great shops and cafes in town. Club Chemistry and Chill are where the majority of students go, but I found a lot of evenings went by nicely in The Penny Theatre, which has nice cheap pints and food. The professors are amazing, and the support services are constant and very helpful, and I felt completely supported academically.

    I have loved my 3 years at Kent. It really does feel like a family. The campus is amazing (especially if you like rabbits), there is lots of places to relax, study or socialise. The facility's are all in great condition and well thought out. Plenty of opportunity to get involved in extra things such as clubs, work, volunteering etc. Like any family it has its problems (mainly communication) but this is something they seem to be working on and the enthusiastic caring lecturers make up for it.

    I honestly love it. Literally my only criticism is that things can be expensive but its just about being reasonable and not going out for restaurant meals or personal shopping every week.
