Media and English - Goldsmiths, University of London

This degree allows you to explore critical perspectives in literature and media alongside each other while developing your skills in creative writing (script and short story) and editing. **Why study BA Media & English at Goldsmiths?** - The media shapes our lives in many unseen ways, from our views on race and religion to the way we see the economy. You’ll be given the tools you need to understand and address these issues. We encourage you to be critical – a vital skill for questioning the status quo. - You’ll develop a vocabulary for discussing and analysing works of literature from different genres and historical periods. - This course offers you the chance to cultivate your creative skills – you’ll be creating screenplays for film and TV, plays for radio, and short stories. These will form a portfolio that you can show to future employers. - You’ll gain an understanding of media production and how writing impacts on the technical aspects of the media industry. - We regularly host events in which major international researchers, writers and critics present and talk about their work; they have included Danny Boyle, Gurinder Chadha, Noel Clark and Sir Lenny Henry. Please note the BA Media and English only accepts applications for first year entry.
