The Course

Summary

The worlds of Film and English make an exciting combination – there is much intellectual common ground on issues such as authorship, genre, identity and representation – and there is a great deal of cross-over when film adaptations are made from English Literature. This course gives you the opportunity to explore the similarities and differences between these two complementary disciplines. Your English learning will take you on a chronological journey from the beginnings of the English language right up to the 21st century, exploring the work of those who have the most prodigious effect on English literature and language.

The Film Studies modules that you take will teach you the various methods of critical analysis that can be applied to film. You can choose from a vast variety of option modules in your third year, allowing you to really focus of the areas of English Literature and Film Studies that interest you the most.
