Course summary

Across the academy globally, dialogues between those studying literary and digital art forms are reshaping how we understand, and work with, narrative and storytelling. As part of a wider commitment to nurturing these discussions, Royal Holloway is now offering a B.A in Literature and the Digital Arts. This exciting new degree will develop your awareness of the particular characteristics of narrative in literary and digital contexts. You will investigate narrative practices and devices in a variety of domains, gaining a theoretical and practical training in what narrative is what it can be in new media. From more traditional and historical narratives through to early internet storytelling and digital arts to contemporary narratives in interactive media and virtual reality, you’ll study the ways in which digital life and writing affect and transform each other.Students entering work in the creative industries are best-placed to innovate in fields such as video game design, online publishing and broadcasting, animation and video and audio production, if they can first draw on a rigorous and robust sense of how different narratives operate. In year one of the degree, you will sharpen your knowledge of the structures and effects of different storytelling in classes taught by experts across the English and Media Arts departments. By year two, you will have developed a conceptual framework and vocabulary for discussing narrative in a range of contexts, and in your third year you will gain hands-on experience in producing your own media. The basis for all of this innovative work will be your deep thinking about how literature and the digital arts are in mutually-nourishing relation. - Study a unique course on narrative from literary history to contemporary digital storytelling.- Gain expertise in storytelling in literature, film, TV, videogames, immersive and other media.- Option for practical work in digital creative writing.- Work towards your future ambitions with an employability focussed pathway into the digital and creative industries.- Enjoy a unique blend of both theoretical rigour and creative-critical work.
