Course Summary:
This well-established joint programme allows students to train in these separate disciplines and to exploit the synergies between them. Studying literature, students will harness core skills in critical and independent thinking to analyse a range of literary texts, gaining a sophisticated appreciation of how texts interact with their historical and social contexts. Studying film, students will examine a range of critical approaches, investigate developments in American and British cinema from their origins to the present day and discover how cinema has become a significant part of international culture as a major entertainment industry. In year one, students will be introduced to the history, theory and critical underpinnings they need to study English and film. During their second year, students will extend their basic knowledge and understanding of literature and cinema through modules that focus on areas such as the Romantic period, British cinema and contemporary Hollywood. Following on from these core modules students will begin to select options, in line with their particular interests, in both areas. The final year of the course offers students an even wider range of options from which to choose. Film options are completed in the first semester, while the second semester focuses on English. The course boasts strong industry links with several local culture organisations including HOME, Greater Manchester Arts Centre, The Salford Film Festival, and the Viva: Spanish and Latin American Film Festival. This course also provides its undergraduates with an in-depth insight into the practicalities of film distribution and exhibition via work placements during the Film Exhibition and Distribution module.
Modules:
YEAR 1: In Year One, through a series of core modules, you will be introduced to the field of literary and cultural theory and literary narrative in relation to fiction and the novel. Alongside this you will study the history of cinema from its origins to the present day. You will also examine a range of critical approaches to film as well as investigating the world’s most powerful film industry: Hollywood. YEAR 2: During the first part of your second year you will extend your basic knowledge and understanding of literature and cinema through core modules that focus on areas such as the Romantic period, British cinema and contemporary Hollywood. Following on from these, you will begin to focus your studies on the areas you find most interesting by taking a number of module options that reflect the expertise of Salford’s teaching staff. YEAR 3: The final year of the course offers a range of options from which you can choose to specialise. Film options are completed in the first semester, while the second semester focuses on English.

Manchester is a legendary party city, with loads of things to do every night and lots of things catered to students. The facilities at the Uni are amazing, they’re constantly doing it up and there’s loads of space and computers in the Library now, makes studying so much more relaxing. The staff are all really helpful, and my tutors were incredible – really interesting intellectuals, down to earth and with plenty of great advice and feedback to offer me.

    I have genuinely enjoyed my first year at university immensely. The course has made me think and question my ideas, allowing me to critique my own work to improve it, I believe the extensive group work has given me the confidence to decide for myself if something I've produced is good, and be confident in my decisions. My tutors have been lovely, and with the small class sizes all of my tutors know my name, where I'm from, what my style is, my strengths and weaknesses and how I want to go into the photography industry in a particular genre. I've been allowed access to equipment and techniques, I hadn't even thought to try before. The university also offers a lot of student jobs, during term time and over the summer. these jobs can be anything from office work, or showing people around on open days, but they pay exceptionally well and inform you on new jobs frequently.
