Course Summary

This well-established joint programme allows students to train in these separate disciplines and to exploit the synergies between them.Studying literature, students will harness core skills in critical and independent thinking to analyse a range of literary texts, gaining a sophisticated appreciation of how texts interact with their historical and social contexts.Studying film, students will examine a range of critical approaches, investigate developments in American and British cinema from their origins to the present day and discover how cinema has become a significant part of international culture as a major entertainment industry.In year one, students will be introduced to the history, theory and critical underpinnings they need to study English and film. During their second year, students will extend their basic knowledge and understanding of literature and cinema through modules that focus on areas such as the Romantic period, British cinema and contemporary Hollywood. Following on from these core modules students will begin to select options, in line with their particular interests, in both areas. The final year of the course offers students an even wider range of options from which to choose. Film options are completed in the first semester, while the second semester focuses on English.The course boasts strong industry links with several local culture organisations including HOME, Greater Manchester Arts Centre, The Salford Film Festival, and the Viva: Spanish and Latin American Film Festival. This course also provides its undergraduates with an in-depth insight into the practicalities of film distribution and exhibition via work placements during the Film Exhibition and Distribution module.
