BA CREATIVE WRITING AND FILM WW86

Full Time: 3 Years
Develop and hone your creative writing while building a breadth of film knowledge and analytical skills with our BA Creative Writing and Film course.
Taught jointly by the Department of English Literature and the Department of Film, Theatre and Television, on this course you will:
explore your creative writing in small peer groups
examine film in its various contexts: as popular entertainment, theoretical discipline and art form
have the opportunity to develop your practical filmmaking skills.
Creative writing and film complement each other perfectly. Exploring cinematic material and analysing creative choices will support the development of your own creative writing. Optional practical work will enhance your ability to create compelling characters and narratives.
Creative writing
Creative writing allows you to explore your creativity from all angles: creating characters, shaping poems, drawing on your imagination.
We offer a specially curated group of English literature modules that are designed to complement your creative writing. You’ll gain knowledge of a variety of literary, dramatic and film texts, from a range of different periods. This course aims to foster your independent thinking, using the close reading and analytical skills that are fundamental to both English literature and film.
We place a strong emphasis on small-group learning within a friendly and supportive environment. Workshops are central to our creative writing community, helping you to form relationships with your peers and feel more confident about your work.
