The Combined Honours programme in English and Film provides you with a firm foundation in the study of literature and of film. Your modules aim to develop your familiarity with a historically and nationally diverse range of films and literary texts, from Chaucer to contemporary digital media. Your studies will equip you with the critical tools and vocabulary to analyse them thoughtfully and in depth. You’ll divide your time 50-50 between studying literature and studying film, and will benefit from a very wide range of module choices, such as Shakespeare’s Bodies, Imperial Encounters and Writing the Short Film. The degree is flexible so you can pursue your developing interests, either blending your study of film with that of literature, or choosing modules which offer contrasting approaches. The opportunity to work in interdisciplinary ways between literary and visual cultural texts is a distinctive aspect of the programme, and of the English department at Exeter. The programme includes a year of study abroad (usually the third year of the four year programme), at one of our renowned partner institutions.
