Course summary

TEF Silver

Queen Mary University of London has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.

Find out more about the TEF.

Expand your cultural horizons by studying both literature and film from around the world. Our BA in Comparative Literature and Film Studies allows you to combine two complementary subjects and make connections between them. In the first year you’ll be given a solid grounding in the discipline of literary studies, and an introduction to the history of film and key concepts in film studies. From the second year you’ll choose modules from modern fairy tales to First World War literature and a host of themes from madness to migration, and cinema in France, Germany or India to film archaeology. You can even try your hand at screenwriting. The wide range of optional modules in your second and third years means you can tailor your studies to the areas of literature and film which interest you most, and weight your studies towards one field or the other. You can also extend your degree by studying abroad for a year.
