Course Summary:
Are you interested in the studying at the point where film and literary theory meet? This interdisciplinary degree will enable you to combine critical analysis of films and literary texts with various practical filming projects. Upon graduation, you may wish to pursue a career in publishing, writing, PR, advertising, TV, media, journalism, management, administration or research for film and TV. This course is also a suitable platform for those who wish to pursue postgraduate study. Southampton Solent University's English and film students are taught these skills by a course team with expertise in screenwriting, production and directing. The academic staff are responsible for a range of published work and maintain strong ties to the industry. This course integrates critical analysis and research into film and film practice with insights into working in the film industry. This helps students develop an understanding of how films are planned, developed and creatively executed, allowing them to achieve a critical understanding of how film theory can be married to film practice. In the past, this style of learning has been facilitated by a programme of guest lectures and masterclasses delivered by professionals in the film, writing and publishing industries. Alongside these special guests, regular lectures and seminars help students to understand literature, literary genres, writing and production styles in the context of different periods of literary and film history. To help enable students study, Solent is home to a multi-million pound media academy which offers access to some of the most up-to-date media technology. Facilities include TV studios, editing suites and high-end video laboratories. Students are also able to access our on-site 3D cinema and an extensive film and television library.
