What will I learn?

Comparative Literature - Comparative Literature at St Andrews gives you the chance to explore a range of literatures – Arabic, Persian, French, German, Italian, Russian and Spanish in English translation, as well as texts from the UK and US – allowing you to gain insight into the different cultural traditions, socio-political and historical forces that have helped to form national and transnational canons. A focus on close reading and an introduction to issues surrounding literary translation as well as comparative methodologies will develop your analytical, descriptive, and evaluative skills. You will have the opportunity to read, discuss, and present reasoned arguments, and work on writing with precision and clarity.

Film Studies - Film Studies offers a comprehensive study of global film cultures. Engaging the cultural, industrial and institutional contexts of global cinema, as well as analytical, media historical, political and phenomenological approaches to film scholarship, you will emerge with a powerful and relevant set of scholarly tools. Students critically examine the history of film and related media in their artistic, documentary and non-theatrical variants, from the pre-cinematic to the digital, looking at a diverse range of topics from stars to media activism, and from archives to film festivals.
