Film studies

This joint honours degree gives you a unique insight into visual and literary culture. You’ll have the chance to explore the richness of English language and literature alongside cinemas from around the world, gaining the critical skills and cultural awareness valued by employers.

Core modules introduce the principles of film studies and different elements of poetry, drama and prose. Then you’ll choose from an impressive variety of optional modules to pursue your interests, from medieval literature to creative writing, aesthetics to gender and sex in cinema.

Offered by the School of English and Centre for World Cinemas, this degree allows you to study two different yet related disciplines in an exciting cultural hub. Leeds is home to the Leeds International Film Festival and great independent cinemas. We’re close to Bradford – home of the National Science and Media Museum as well as another established festival. It’s the perfect part of the world in which to explore these exciting subjects.
