On this English and Film Studies (Hons) from University of Dundee you can study anything from introductory film studies to Film Noir, Shakespeare to science fiction, Victorian novels to Hollywood films, or Romantic poetry to art cinema.
For the English modules we start by covering topics such as how to analyse a poem and how to read a novel as a literary critic, moving on to historical surveys of literature. We then explore in more detail many of the periods, movements and topics previously covered.
For the film modules we start with a study of film from its origins, exploring key film techniques and genres, before moving on to study classic Hollywood film, international cinemas, and Film Noir. We then expand on this foundational knowledge to look at topics including:
- art cinema
- film theory
- the intersections between film and theatre, and film and literature
TeachingWe use a wide range of methods, from lectures, to small group seminars or tutorials, and film screenings.Most modules in Levels 1 and 2 have two lectures and one tutorial each week.This may vary in Levels 3 and 4, where you typically have one lecture and more small working groups or seminars per week.
Throughout the course you will be given the opportunity to view the films you are studying through weekly dedicated film screenings. In Levels 3 and 4 we offer you modules that reflect the diverse research specialisms of our world-leading staff, giving you an extremely varied range of choices. In Level 4 you can undertake a dissertation, where you will work closely with staff members who are working on topics that are of interest to you.
English and Film Studies are adaptable subjects which open up a flexible range of career options.
