This course combines film and English. Guided by leading scholars and practitioners, you will explore the history of film and television, consider theoretical perspectives, and engage in practice-based activities. You will have the opportunity to undertake a practical project or written dissertation, or a work placement in the creative industries. For English, you will also study a broad range of literature written in English from the medieval period to the present day. This will include the close, analytical study of poetry, fiction and drama, and critical and theoretical approaches to studying literature. In years one and two, the study of successive periods of English literature is complemented with work on individual authors, topics and genres. In your second and third years you will be able to choose from a range of stimulating options and research-led special subjects. Year three includes the opportunity to write a dissertation on a topic of your own choosing.
