Course summary

On this course you can study anything from introductory film studies to Film Noir, Shakespeare to science fiction, Victorian novels to Hollywood films, or Romantic poetry to art cinema. For the English modules we start by covering topics such as how to analyse a poem and how to read a novel as a literary critic, moving on to historical surveys of literature. We then explore in more detail many of the periods, movements and topics previously covered. For the film modules we start with a study of film from its origins, exploring key film techniques and genres, before moving on to study classic Hollywood film, international cinemas, and Film Noir. We then expand on this foundational knowledge to look at topics including: art cinema film theory the intersections between film and theatre, and film and literature In Levels 1 and 2 you will also complement your specialist subjects by studying additional Humanities or Social Science subjects such as history or philosophy for example. We have strong research and teaching links with the creative communities around us, such as the Dundee Rep Theatre, Dundee Contemporary Arts Centre, Dundee Comics Creative Space, The McManus, and V&A Dundee. We also have an online review magazine, DURA, where you can try your hand at writing reviews, and a very successful drama group called JOOT, with which you can get involved as an actor or as a member of production.
