Course Overview

Taking Film and English Literature at Lancaster gives you the opportunity to study for a stimulating degree scheme based jointly at the Lancaster Institute for the Contemporary Arts (LICA) and the Department of English and Creative Writing.

Your Film degree examines cinema’s aesthetic importance in the context of an increasingly visual and media-oriented culture, while investigating the connections between contemporary art, theatre, music and film. Lancaster’s course is academic rather than vocational, but you will have the opportunity at each year of the programme to make your own digital films using the University’s state-of-the-art equipment.

In English Literature, you’ll explore texts of different periods and genres, develop a deeper understanding of literature’s role in society, and discover new approaches. The department has an established interest in intersections between literature and film.

You’ll begin your degree with modules including English Literature and Introduction to Film.

In your second year, you’ll study subjects such Literature and Film and Global Cinema before completing your degree with a Film Dissertation module.
