In our English Literature and Film degree you consider the disciplinary differences of literature and film as well as their interdependence, as many films begin as screenplays and many novels have been adapted for the big screen. The programme draws on the research interests and expertise of staff with subject-specific and strong interdisciplinary backgrounds. You develop sophisticated skills in analysis, expression, argumentation and presentation, all of which are preparatory to success in future employment, whether you want to be a screenwriter, novelist or director. You are made familiar with the theoretical concepts and methodological skills needed to analyse film and literary texts in historical, cultural, political and social contexts. The three-year programme aims to encourage a critical and questioning attitude towards the material studied and the methods of study adopted. Talented and committed staff guide an interactive learning experience based in an exciting cultural city. While lectures are an important part of teaching, so too is film viewing, reading, independent research and a range of other learning practices. In Year 1, you develop critical approaches and key skills through core modules including Introduction to English Studies, Film Criticism and Understanding Horror Film. In Year 2, you learn about literary adaptations and approaches to film. In addition you take optional modules such as Shakespeare and Early Modern Drama, Classical Hollywood Cinema and Gangster and Crime Film. In Year 3, you choose three film and three English-based optional modules in subjects such as Gothic Film, Biography and the Body, and Renaissance Poetry. You also research and compose a dissertation. A degree in English Literature and Film opens many doors. You acquire a range of highly transferable qualities that are valued by employers, including analytical thinking, evaluative and research skills, self-discipline, and effective written and spoken communication, as well as an ability to apply knowledge of a wide range of theoretical concepts to practical scenarios. Graduates pursue careers in the film, television, creative, advertising, media and journalism industries. Others go into teaching, education, library services and publishing.
