About this course

Study Film and English at Southampton and discover how we tell stories across both art forms. You'll analyse writing, from early poetry to the present day, and learn how to see films with a critical eye. You can view literature and films in new contexts, including performance, music, science, philosophy and more. A year abroad will add another dimension to your university experience.

In Film, you'll study familiar classics alongside contemporary cinema, and genres including:

  • film noir

  • horror

  • science fiction

  • documentary

  • animation

You'll deepen your understanding and enjoyment of films and develop your critical thinking as part of a lively community.

Our English modules look at written English from across the world, in many social and cultural contexts.

You can examine both classical and popular novel adaptations in our specialised module. From Jane Austen to Harry Potter, you'll explore the close links between film and literature.

You'll spend your third year studying at one of our partner universities abroad. Your options include: South Korea, Sweden, Ireland or the Czech Republic – countries with their own distinctive film cultures.
