You need to decide what you want to do pretty much in first year.

My advice to future students is: It's a good degree to see what you like or what you want to do in the future ... But if you change around then it just might take a little longer to finish your degree

I'm doing my honours.

Positives: Good for those who are interested in areas within the BA e.g. history, media, politics, but still want to explore different options and get a broad humanities education. Honours year is challenging but rewarding, and staff are excellent

Negatives: Larger faculties can feel a bit impersonal, slow essay marking turnaround, first and second year subjects can be quite dry

My advice to future students is: Research your uni options!! Look at things like opportunities for study abroad, subject structure, compulsory subjects etc. to see if you might actually be interested in the course content - don’t just look at the name of the course/prestige of the uni

Positives: They teach us about theories and the behind the scenes influences (social, political) that create nuances in film, and through this we can better understand the mindset and background of why and how films were made. The essay writing structure is also of a high standard, so we require to do intensive research to create strong thesis about whatever we want to argue

Negatives: Sometimes the course material gets repetitive. I end up writing about things cross-module, and I argue roughly the same things in the same format. It was intriguing at first, but by year 3 I'm pretty bored

My advice to future students is: Have a strong passion for very specific things and write your essays towards that as a goal. You'll learn a lot more by exploring topica you're interested about rather than trying to do something to please your prof.
