They focus on the things we care about, featuring issues we can explore about important human themes, individual identity or social and political patterns of behaviour.But to make sure they strike the right note with their audience, stories have to be constructed with care. They need to be planned, crafted, funded, produced and distributed.You'll learn about the film industry and discover how to analyse, discuss and write about film. You'll study a range of modern literary texts in different genres, analysing how they work and how to compare them to great texts of the past.We'll also give you plenty of opportunities to bring the two sides of your degree together, exploring topics such as how books have been turned into films, or films into books.Practical and professional experience is at the heart of your degree.
