Stories touch all our lives. They focus on the things we care about, featuring issues we can explore about important human themes, individual identity or social and political patterns of behaviour. But to make sure they strike the right note with their audience, stories have to be constructed with care. They need to be planned, crafted, funded, produced and distributed. If you love a good story, whether in print or in film, indulge your passions and learn how to craft the perfect story by studying English and Film. You'll learn about the film industry and discover how to analyse, discuss and write about film. You'll study a range of modern literary texts in different genres, analysing how they work and how to compare them to great texts of the past. We'll also give you plenty of opportunities to bring the two sides of your degree together, exploring topics such as how books have been turned into films, or films into books. Practical and professional experience is at the heart of your degree. You'll have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in the practical aspects of film-making such as camera, photography and lighting, or you can develop your scriptwriting skills. In each year of study, you'll have the opportunity to produce your own creative writing, either for a creative project or in response to a text. You'll also complete two professional work placements, working with employers from a wide range of creative industries. Placement opportunities We are one of only a few UK universities to build professional work placements into every degree. You'll complete two professional work placements, which will give you the chance to graduate with up to three months' professional work experience without having to take a sandwich year out. Our students have completed their placements at a variety of organisations – from film production companies and recording studios, to local newspapers and MPs' offices. If you're interested in teaching, you could also experience working in a primary or secondary school. Graduate opportunities You'll be well-prepared for a career in playwriting, scriptwriting, teaching, marketing, PR, copywriting, publishing and journalism. Many of our graduates also continue on to postgraduate level study.
On this degree you will study a range of modules. In the first year you will be trained in the skills, knowledge, tools, and perspectives required to engage critically with texts and films. This equips and prepares you for the second year in which you tackle modules organised around historical periods and around cultural issues and trends. At this stage we provide training and support for your engagement with existing scholarship, the production of your own analyses, and with the communication of your findings. The final year brings all this together with modules that offer more scope to choose your own topics so you can develop confidence and experience as an independent researcher and producer of knowledge.
The number of student respondents and response rates can be important in interpreting the data. For further information, see the Discover Uni website.
