Studying for a joint honours degree in English Literature and Film gives you the freedom to explore your passion for film while developing skills associated with the study of literature.
English at Kent is challenging, flexible, and wide-ranging. It covers both traditional areas (such as Shakespeare and Dickens) and newer fields such as American literature, creative writing, postcolonial literature and recent developments in literary theory. We also offer you the opportunity to study abroad in the third year of a four-year programme.
The School of English is a large and thriving department but we take great care in ensuring that it is a supportive environment in which to be a student. From the moment you arrive, you are an integral part of a scholarly community of students, teachers and researchers and can participate in a dialogue which seeks to push the boundaries of the subject into new fields of social and cultural inquiry. You are taught by leading international researchers and award-winning creative writers in a location steeped in literary history.
Film at Kent engages with cinema’s rich scope and history, from silent classics and mainstream Hollywood to world cinema and the avant-garde. Modules cover film theory, history and practice, from the basics of form and style to topics including national cinemas, animation, cognition and emotion, fantasy and pulp film.
Students enjoy access 62-seat cinema named after the pioneering female film director Ida Lupino. The Lupino has state-of-the-art digital projection and sound, and has been created to provide an intimate atmosphere for film viewing.
