English Literature and Film Studies

If you wish to study two academic subjects in depth our Joint Honours degree programmes are a great way to do this. Combining Film Studies and English Literature degree programmes at York St John provides you with an opportunity to study the genres, social and historical contexts, pleasures and the politics of film, whilst also exploring how stories work, how they appeal to us, persuade us and affect us. We are bombarded with words and surrounded by stories – stories told to inform us, to entertain us, to unnerve us, to make us cry, to make us laugh, to make us buy things. Understanding how stories work – and how they appeal to us, persuade us and affect us – is part of understanding the world we live in.
