This highly contemporary and stimulating course has been designed with the aim of providing you with a wide range of interesting, exciting and challenging opportunities to develop your passion for literature, intellectual abilities and creative talents in the field of the audio-visual.
Why choose this course?
Studying a joint honours degree will allow you to tailor your studies to suit your interests and to develop, alongside your growth as a student of English, a specialism in an area of creative audio-visual practice. This approach will help you develop into a high calibre, motivated graduate, equipped with the confidence and flexibility to thrive in the dynamic media landscape.
In the core and option modules in English, we will enhance your understanding and appreciation of literature. You will acquire subject specific knowledge and more general skills, including knowledge of a variety of different kinds of literary texts from a range of different periods.
In your film modules we aim to build your knowledge of history and theory of the moving image as well as helping you develop a comprehensive set of advanced skills in audio-visual production.
Additionally, you will gain valuable work experience in your second year, in a placement related to your core literary interests or in the area with which you are combining English. Students typically gain work in publishing, radio or film.
