The Creative Writing and Film Cultures (Hons) course at Kingston University explores creative writing and film as part of a dynamic matrix of cultural influences, in relation to politics, the visual arts and popular culture. It considers the ways in which creative writing and film can both shape and be shaped by their surrounding political contexts, and it engages with a range of theoretical ideas, from authorship and reception, to identity and ideology.
The degree fosters creativity and problem-solving skills and integrates professional practice into its modules through a variety of forms of assessment. It trains you in the writing and critical skills that are highly desirable to employers, and supports you throughout to gain confidence as independent learners.
You will be encouraged to develop a range of skills to articulate your ideas in written, oral and visual form across a variety of formats, allowing you to develop yourself for a career as a writer and more broadly in the creative industries.
The degree is aimed at students keen to join the film and creative industries in areas outside practical production. The degree will provide students with experience of and insights into various roles across the creative industries including scriptwriting, festival programming, museum and exhibit curation, promotion and copywriting, social media management, fundraising, and teaching.
