Course summary

Our English and film degree is characterised by the richness of literature and the study of film in its critical and creative context. You’ll explore both art forms individually, as well as examining the relationship between them. As part of your English modules, you’ll build your core skills in critical and creative thinking, equipping you with the tools you need to analyse a range of literary texts. You’ll also gain an appreciation of how literature reflects the social and historical contexts in which it was written. Alongside your study of literature, you’ll consider the cultural and creative impact of film. From exploring developments in American and British cinema, you'll also have the opportunity to examine cinema from across Europe, Latin America, Asia and beyond; evaluating the role of cinema as a major entertainment industry as well as thinking about film as a political and socio-cultural property along the way.
