Study the intersecting worlds of film and literature in London, the cultural capital and heart of the UK film industry.

Our BA English and Film Studies programme demands creative, original thought. Literature and film ask us to question how class, race, ethnicity and sexuality are represented on the page and screen, and the impact of evolving language and technologies.

Our joint degree programme introduces you to the history, theory and practice of cinema, and covers a wide range of literary texts and theories of reading. We teach you to apply critical theory and close textual and visual analysis to the realms of film and literature, and explore the connections between cinematic works and literary texts from many different regions and historical periods.

Options in the second and final years will allow you to concentrate on the subject areas that interest you most, from medieval literature to contemporary Hollywood cinema.
