Film Studies with Creative Writing with Humanities Foundation Year - Keele University

At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We’re proud to be ‘University of the Year for Student Experience’ in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too. Studying The Humanities Foundation Year will allow for an exploration and deeper understanding of various subject disciplines, which can then be focused when progressing onto an honours degree at Keele. This course provides preparation for the academic skills required for degree level study, delivering the opportunity to develop the questioning and analytical skills required for progression in your chosen humanities subject. After you have completed your Humanities Foundation Year, you could progress on to the Film Studies with Creative Writing course. You will have the opportunity to develop your creative practice skills alongside the analytical study of screen and literary texts. You will explore the core areas of Film Studies, with Keele’s combined emphasis on local and global film cultures, and its focus on the key concepts and issues in film history and theory. Looking across a range of films and filmmaking contexts, from Classical Hollywood to contemporary transnational cinemas, you will analyse, discuss and debate the cultural significance and creative possibilities of this powerful medium. Alongside this, you will study literature and creative writing in every semester, experimenting with poetry, prose and screenwriting in order to develop your writing skills and to become a mature practitioner. You’ll be taught by a team who are research active and expert in their fields, with a commitment to lively and innovative teaching methods. The module options at Keele, allow you to combine your learning and skills in creative filmmaking production. Throughout the course, you will analyse your work in a critical but supportive group framework and gain vital feedback and reflection on your own practice.
