The Centre for World Cinemas and Digital Cultures offers Joint Honours programmes which combine Film Studies with another subject.

BA English and Film Studies

Our new programme, BA English and Film Studies, grants you a critical insight into film studies alongside an in-depth knowledge and understanding of English literature. The programme allows you to specialise in areas of your own interest, helping you to develop a wealth of valuable research skills as well as a capacity for independent study. You will be taught by staff from the Centre for World Cinemas and Digital Cultures and by the School of English.

Modules across the three year programme may include:

  • Introduction to Audio-Visual Culture: complement your studies by placing film in its wider cultural context and develop a conceptual framework for thinking about a wide range of audio-visual cultures, such as video games, networked social media, sculpture and theatre.
  • Introduction to Film Studies II: investigate concepts of auteur filmmaking, popular cinema, and industry. Review world cinema movements such as the Japanese and French nouvelle vague, Spanish cinema after Almodóvar, and Brazilian cinema.
  • Psychotronic Cinemas: explore cult movies produced worldwide between 1936 and 2012, and gain a critical insight into idiosyncratic films that defy generic classification.
  • Prose: Reading and Interpretation: explore the fundamentals of narrative form, theoretical approaches such as Marxism and psychoanalysis, and topics like race, politics, authorship, and gender difference.
