Part of this Film and Television Studies and American Studies (Hons) degree at the University of Nottingham interrogates film and television as art forms and industries, locating them within specific historical and social contexts. The other part approaches North American literature, history, politics, art and music, situating the US, Canada and ethnic and regional American cultures in transnational and global perspectives.
In year one, you have the choice of taking core modules in either American history or American literature. You will also take a multidisciplinary module exploring the relationship between film, literature and culture in the North American context. In film and television you will engage in multidisciplinary activity in addition to core studies in film and television history, production cultures, the analysis of film texts and key critical perspectives, and the contexts of film and television consumption.
Year two broadens and develops your understanding of core concepts. In American studies, a survey of North American regions extends your understanding of American society and cultural forms. You will also select two optional modules from a range which covers particular periods, events, themes, genres, authors and texts in greater depth. In film and television studies, you will explore how film and television converge in the contemporary media landscape.
In year three, you will continue and extend the process of specialisation promoted in the second year. You will write an original research dissertation and follow a programme of advanced study in a choice of modules in film and television and in American and Canadian history, literature and culture.
