The BA Film and English Studies programme brings together approaches from Film Studies and English studies, drawing on a range of critical tools vital for the analysis of texts, histories and institutions relevant to both disciplines, whilst placing them within broader social and cultural contexts.
There is a strong emphasis on history in the Film Studies component, from silent cinema to contemporary Hollywood and its cross-media storytelling. Issues of adaptation across and between media is a key concern of this programme, with students exploring theories of adaptation and authorship, including through optional screenwriting courses in which you adapt novels and other source material for the screen.
The English studies component offers lots of choice, drawing on expertise in literature, history, creative writing and drama. A number of modules have been designed to bring the disciplines together in productive dialogue, such as Shakespeare on Stage to Screen, and British Cinema and the Past.
