The Bill Douglas Cinema Museum has close links with the College of Humanities. The department of English runs a Single Honours Film Studies degree as well as a combined degree in English and Film, and The Department of Modern Languages runs several combined honours courses in languages with film. A number of English courses have also traditionally used the collections to enhance the study of everything from Imperial Attitudes, to Dickens to the body and the enlightenment. The museum is also developing close links with the History, Drama and Classics departments, with students from these subjects using resources from the collection within seminar work and also being involved in curating temporary exhibitions.
The university's thriving film department includes links with the London Film School for postgraduate students who are looking to develop technical filmmaking as well as academic skills.
Exeter is also home to The Centre for Interdisciplinary Film Research (CIFR) which encompasses Film Studies research, teaching and activities across the University. This interdisciplinary research environment has proven remarkably productive, with many successful MA and PhD candidates now working full time in academic and research posts.
