The Times/Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018
Explore literature in its most modern context alongside film theory and criticism in this Joint Honours degree.
The BA (Hons) in English and Film degree will deepen your interest, understanding and knowledge of important texts, genres and concerns in modern literature from across a wide and diverse area of cultural studies, including: popular culture, genre fiction and film, adaptation studies, TV studies, new media, creative writing, critical psychology, and socially-relevant modules examining cultural representations of crime, urbanism, ecology, terrorism, global conflict, and more.
You'll also gain a strong foundation in a range of global cinemas, including the theoretical and historical debates that have helped to shape our understanding of film.
This course will develop your critical and theoretical skills, and help prepare you for a career in a number of areas of the cultural and creative industries.
The BA (Hons) in English and Film is not a practical film-making course. However, the University does offer plenty of other practical courses in this area, in both film and television. Visit our media study area for further details.
