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.
