Film Studies and English Literature

UEA has an outstanding reputation for both film and literature. This degree brings together these two intertwined subjects allowing you to explore key writers and traditions in English literature whilst discovering a global range of cinema from the silent period to the present day. The degree is ideal for those interested in a range of careers including journalism, advertising, teaching, research, scriptwriting, the media or cultural industries. Across your degree, you will take part in screenings, lectures, seminars, practical workshops and tutorials to help you develop a range of skills. You will develop as a literary and film critic, learning how to communicate and defend your ideas, as well as how to listen to and critique the ideas of others. You will become an accomplished researcher, managing your workload as you work both independently and as part of a team. You will work across two of the most highly regarded university departments in these closely linked fields. You will learn about film, drama, writing and the relationship between them through modules that will give you the critical tools to analyse and understand them fully. Our Film and Television Studies degree is one of the longest established and most prestigious of its kind in the country. We are recognised as world leaders in the study of British, Hollywood and Asian cinemas, popular film and television genres, and feminist approaches to media. At UEA we are home to the unique East Anglian Film Archive, and you’ll have access to this incredible resource as well as to our fully equipped television studio, and our many screenings and events. In addition to this, we are famous for the quality and adventurous nature of our English literature teaching. You’ll be studying in England’s first UNESCO City of Literature, and be taught by international experts, prize-winning poets, novelists, biographers and literary translators. World-renowned literature has been produced here for centuries – there’s no better place to hone your skills as a literary critic. You may also have the chance to spend a semester of your second year abroad.
