What you'll learn on the course
Skills and Training
The combination of English and Film Studies offers a challenging and stimulating programme of study. This degree offers you the opportunity to study in a department that has a thriving and internationally recognised research culture.
Reading English allows you to study some of the most interesting and exciting books ever written. The English programme strikes a balance between the study of writers such as Shakespeare, Milton, Wordsworth, Dickens, and Woolf, and the exploration of less traditional areas like modern science fiction, children's literature and contemporary women's writing.
Film Studies offers an excellent balance of theory and practice, allowing you to engage with essential critical and aesthetic approaches to a range of films and to apply those creatively to a range of practical projects. The course provides opportunities to screen your work on and off-campus, to undertake commissioned work and to engage with the film industry through self-generated work placements, thereby encouraging the development of critical knowledge alongside transferable and vocational skills.
