Here at Keele, you’ll study film analytically, whilst integrating and emphasising the significance of screen writing in the context of different modes of writing, including scripts, poetry and prose.
You’ll explore each of the core areas of Film Studies: film history; national cinemas; film theory; film and culture. While core modules cover key skills and concepts in film studies, a variety of elective modules offer you the opportunity to pursue more focused interests in genre, particular film directors and in a variety of international cinemas. You’ll revisit popular and ‘classic’ cinema within new and enriching critical frameworks but will also have the chance to study and enjoy films from other less familiar film making traditions, periods and cultures. You will also study creative writing in every semester, experimenting with poetry, prose, and screenwriting in order to develop your creative writing and to become a self-reflexive practitioner. You’ll be taught by a team who are research active experts in their fields, with a commitment to lively and innovative teaching methods.
