Course summary

At Keele University, we’re proud to be consistently ranked in the Top 3 UK universities for student satisfaction, which is testimony to the safe, supportive and welcoming campus we hope you’ll soon call home.A degree in English Literature and Film Studies is an opportunity to become a sophisticated reader of text and screen. You will learn to develop the advanced critical and historical skills to analyse and understand these two interconnected forms of media.You will gain a deep understanding of the aesthetic history of cinema and of literature, as well as learning how creative texts in both forms relate to their social and cultural situations; whether this means understanding how writers have responded to historical and contemporary concerns, or how films have depicted race, class, and gender. Selecting from a range of modules covering literature and film from across different time periods and national cultures, you will develop advanced skills in analysis. You will have opportunities to draw on Keele’s wide strengths to study (for example) film music or documentaries, and you can specialise as you progress through the degree.This degree will provide you with an appreciation for the conditions in which literary and screen texts are produced, giving you an open-minded, inquisitive approach to problems, as well as the practical, conceptual, and analytical skills required to provide solutions that take account of many factors. You may enter various careers, some closely related to these subjects and some that draw on the unique skills that you will develop and apply to new areas. For example, you may enter the creative industries, writing your own material, in fiction or poetry, screenplays or journalism. You will also be able to communicate complex ideas effectively to different kinds of audience, producing persuasive arguments informed by careful research. These skills will prepare you for careers in local and national government, marketing, and management.
