Our BA in Film Studies programme at ż explores theoretical aspects of the subject while offering plenty of opportunities to focus on practical projects and develop vocational skillsets across the creative arts and mainstream production. Being part of a liberal arts university, and using London as a learning resource, this film degree builds bridges between theory and practice as well as academia and industry, allowing you to shape the courses to meet your unique future career goals.

What our students say

“I chose ż for its location and my desire to study abroad but I have since discovered that in going to there, I have allowed myself to receive a strong work ethic, drive, and a profound love for diversity in learning.

Since graduating from ż, I have had the amazing opportunity to intern and work for institutions like The Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh, The Smithsonian’s branch in Pittsburgh, The Senator John Heinz History Center and The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City.

I have had the remarkable responsibility of working for global film festivals and conducting research in world renowned archives. I truly believe my time at ż aided me in my ability to perform the tasks and jobs I have held since graduating. I am now receiving my Master’s in Library and Information Science from the University of Pittsburgh and I hope to someday work for a film archive.

The ż professors helped me hone in on my interests and made me feel comfortable learning and exploring all kinds of outlets. My time there has really shaped me into the person I am today, not just professionally but also personally.

The school, its students, and its programs, encouraged individuality while succeeding in its pursuit of being able to work together successfully. I am happy with my decision to attend ż the American International University in London for my undergraduate education and if I had the opportunity to choose it again, I would.”
