MA in Film and Literature

MA in Film and Literature


– The MA is the MA in Film and Literature The structure is comparable to the rest of
the MAs in the programme, but we’ve got some distinctive features Perhaps one of the best of which is our core
module, which is called ‘Film Literature Encounters’ and that provides a series of classes on a
range of approaches in the relationship between film and literature It’s a training module, but it’s also a module
that gives students an overview of the kind of approaches that they’ll be doing across
the MA as a whole Our MA is strongly interdisciplinary It explores the relationship between film
and literature, but within that it gives students the opportunity to explore relationships between
film and literature and a range of other approaches Although we have a range of dedicated modules
for film and literature, our students can also take modules from across the MA programme
as a whole I look for students who have shown in their
degree an interest in the study of film So although we look for some existing strength
in film, we are quite flexible, we look at the written work, we look at their transcripts
and we assess each student on their strengths It’s a very good MA for students who want
to go on into PhD work, obviously This year for instance we’ve got five students
who are applying for and have been accepted onto PhD courses Our students have gone into film-making, they’ve
gone into teaching, they’ve gone into arts management, they’ve gone into festival direction I enjoy the teaching I know that sounds daft, but our students
really are very interesting people and coming to teach this MA every week is a highlight
of the week This year’s group comes from all over the
world, quite literally and the mixture of cultures and interests
has made extraordinarily stimulating classes.
