This course gives you the opportunity to explore the similarities and differences between two complementary disciplines: English and Film Studies. The worlds of Film and English make an exciting combination – there is much intellectual common ground on issues such as authorship, genre, identity and representation – and there is a great deal of cross-over when film adaptations are made from English Literature. You will develop skills and knowledge relevant to both film and literature but also a fuller understanding of the different aesthetic, commercial and consumption issues they raise. Your English learning will take you on a chronological journey from the beginnings of the English language right up to the 21st century, exploring the work of those who have the most prodigious effect on English literature and language. Leicester is ranked among the top 15 places in the UK for Film Studies*. We offer an exciting and wide-ranging approach to the study of film, television and other visual arts. Our Film Studies modules will teach you the various methods of critical analysis that can be applied to film, whilst you will also gain practical experience – alongside exploring the process of making films, you’ll learn how to produce your own. You can choose from a vast variety of option modules in your third year, allowing you to really focus of the areas of English Literature and Film Studies that interest you the most. *Complete University Guide 2020 (Communication and Media Studies)
