What will I learn?

In our media-led world, do film and literature merely reflect society or shape it? Our courses are ideal for those with a natural curiosity for the world. Our BA Film Studies and Literature allows you to graduate with expertise in two disciplines. Our interdisciplinary study of literature and film ensures you gain a deeper understanding of the historical and aesthetic interrelations between the two art forms. You make formal and theoretical connections between written and visual texts, based on the range of skills you develop in both literary and film analysis.
