BA (Hons)English, Film & Television Studies

Why choose this course?

The BA (Hons) English, Film & Television Studies integrated joint offers a wide ranging approach to both literary and filmic texts. The study of Film with English will help you to communicate more effectively to others using the written and spoken word. You will acquire a range of skills, including heightened analytical abilities, greater independence, enterprise, digital literacy and IT awareness, all of which are of immense value in graduate employment.

What happens on the course?

The Film Studies team has a wealth of expertise across a variety of film forms and national cinemas, which include popular film genres such as The Western, gangster, science fiction and film noir. You will have the opportunity to examine representations of class, gender, ethnicity and identity by studying major movements within national and international cinemas. Students will examine film as an art and as an industrial product. Throughout the programme you will engage with critical and theoretical debates relevant to the subject.

The English half of the course incorporates an exciting balance between the study of canonical literature and a broader sense of cultural texts. Literature from all historical periods from the Renaissance to the present day is represented, with focused studies on Shakespeare, the Eighteenth Century, Romanticism, the Victorian and Modernism. These are complemented by modules which also draw on other forms of artistic production, including paintings and illustration, popular music and drama, film and film adaptation, and other media.

Comments from our External Examiners on provision:

For English:

"The subject curriculum continues to be highly relevant both in terms of the student experience at Wolverhampton and in terms of reflecting the benchmark statements for English, which stress the importance of providing a full range of modules and a diversity of teaching and assessment methods. The English team is to be congratulated once again on ensuring that standards are maintained through the provision of a varied diet of modules, combining traditional and non-traditional courses, with a variety of teaching and assessment methods. The detailed level of feedback provided on all modules remains an example of good practice".

For Film Studies:

"I was very pleased with the work being done here on the work practice module [Community Link]. These can be both problematic to assess and to monitor. The tutor is handling this with skill. I very much like the idea of the student setting their criteria for assessment on the module. The use of the Pebble Pad to track the performance of the student and provide an on-going diary of the work is very good practice indeed".
