Film Studies and English Literature at University of East Anglia UEA - UCAS

Course summary

Overview Make literature and film the joint focus of your studies and discover the secrets of storytelling on page and on screen. UEA is world famous for being a pioneering centre for both film and literary studies. Our film, television, and media academics are celebrated in their field, and of course the university is home to the renowned School of Literature, a drama, and Creative Writing too. Your degree in Film Studies and English Literature will combine classes from both of these vibrant and welcoming centres of learning, and it offers flexibility to study across form and genre, as well as giving you opportunities to practice creative writing if you choose. Your degree covers the history of film and television from its earliest days to the present and literature from the Middle Ages to modern times, from England to Europe and the wider world. From Shakespeare to the Marvel film adaptations, this is a degree that truly expands your storytelling horizons, and inspires your learning. Along the way, you'll sharpen your critical powers, and gain the graduate skills you need to go on to future success. Make use of our outstanding facilities, valuable partnerships, and local opportunities. We’re home to the sector-leading East Anglian Film Archive – a unique resource that you might use in shaping your own Final Year dissertation, for example. We have close links with the British Film Institute in London and the Norwich Film Festival. Meanwhile, you’ll be studying in a region, here, that is a dynamic centre of the media industries, home to local production companies. And of course, your base will be here in the beautiful and historic city of Norwich, famous as the 'City of Stories'. Norwich has been home to ground-breaking writers and readers for centuries, from Julian of Norwich (the first woman to write a book in English) to award-winning UEA alumni like Sir Ian McEwan. As a Film Studies and English Literature student, you'll immerse yourself in this thriving literary scene. You'll have access to unique resources like UEA's British Archive for Contemporary Writing. You'll be able to go to literary events or publishing fairs at the world-renowned National Centre for Writing. It's no wonder Norwich became England's first UNESCO City of Literature! You’ll develop many transferable skills on this degree course, including high-level research and communication skills, team working, leadership, and self-management. These desirable transferable skills will open up a wide variety of careers, whether you want to become a writer, producer, or director in the industry or any number of other occupations in marketing, advertising, the charity sector, and more besides. In the past, our graduates have gone on to success as film industry executives, producers, media managers, creative directors, or to work in film heritage, for example.
