Film Studies and English Literature

This degree brings together two intertwined subject areas. They are both subjects where UEA has an outstanding reputation. You'll benefit from our world-leading expertise as you explore key writers and traditions in English literature and a global range of cinema. In your first year you’ll cover all the essentials of both fields of study. In your second and third years you’ll increasingly specialise in the areas you find most engaging. You’ll choose from creative practice options such as film production or scriptwriting and modules covering diverse topics from the Hollywood studio system to Gothic literature and Shakespeare's England to animation. Or you could look at the process of adapting literature for the screen, bringing your two degree subjects into dynamic dialogue. Our Film, Television and Media Studies department is recognised as a leading centre for the study of British, Hollywood and Asian cinemas, popular film and television genres and feminist approaches to media. We’re home to the extensive East Anglian Film Archive - a unique resource which you can make use of during your time here. We also have close links with the British Film Institute in London. **Course Structure** **Year 1** In the first year you‘ll be introduced to the major debates in film studies and English literature. At the same time you’ll develop the key skills needed to analyse a range of media and literary texts using contemporary and historical examples. **Year 2** You’ll deepen your knowledge in modules covering topics such as film theory. You’ll also begin the specialisation that continues in the third year. Modules at this stage may cover topics such as adaptation: Shakespeare on stage and screen, Austen and the Brontes, and film and video production. You’ll also have the chance to take an internship. Previous students have undertaken placements with organisations including local radio stations, television production companies and the East Anglian Film Archive. **Year 3** You’ll continue to specialise, choosing from modules on a range of areas according to your own interests. Modules may include film and memory and the representation of the past, and genres such as science fiction. In English literature, you can explore areas such as poetry, feminist writings and authors such as Charles Dickens. You’ll also develop your research skills in your dissertation module which includes a period of supervised independent study. You’ll have the opportunity to undertake a media practice project, producing creative work (film, TV, audio, print, advertising, digital) in response to an academic problem. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
