Prepare for a career in screenwriting, journalism or film-making. Develop your creative and professional writing skills, examine key films and film-makers and create your own short films.
On our BA (Hons) Writing and Film Studies, you’ll discover the fascinating ways in which writing and film intersect.
As well as developing your creative writing skills, including screenwriting and short stories, you’ll have the chance to explore professional writing techniques, including film reviews. Combining these with a study of critical writing, you’ll discover new ways to express your literary talent.
You’ll also investigate film-making practices from all over the world and learn the language of film from the perspective of a film-maker. This, along with full training in camera operation, sound recording and editing, will help you create your own explorative short films in video, animation or 16mm format.
You’ll show your progress through many methods, reflecting the varied nature of the course. These will include writing portfolios, critical commentaries, presentations, journals and log books, critical essays, film reviews and analyses, internet, print and video production, and commissions. You’ll also take part in 'crits', in which you’ll present and defend your work.
Our BA (Hons) Writing and Film Studies will help you prepare for many writing and film-related roles. Many of our past students now enjoy careers in film and video production, film criticism, cinema/film festival administration and management, film education, broadcasting, journalism or publishing.
