This course combines film with the study of English.
In our Department of Film and Television, guided by leading scholars and practitioners, you will explore the history of film and television, consider theoretical perspectives, appreciate how films are made and engage in practical film-making activities. Throughout your studies you will encounter a range of film and television professionals, and in your final year you will have the chance to undertake a placement in the creative industries.
Studies in the Department of English will include a broad range of English literature from the medieval period to the present day. This will include the close, analytical study of poetry, fiction and drama, and critical and theoretical approaches to studying literature. In your second and third years you will be able to choose from a range of stimulating options and research-led special subjects, including creative writing, and year three includes the opportunity to write a dissertation on a topic of your own choosing.
