Program Description:

Our MA Film and Literature focuses on the theoretical and practical interactions between literature and film, providing you with a wide range of textual and analytic skills.

The comparative nature of our MA Film and Literature is informed by the research expertise of our staff, which encompasses a wide range of world cinemas, postcolonial studies, cultural theory, translation, adaptation theory, and modernist and postmodernist aesthetics. You can explore the relationship between literature and film from a number of different perspectives, including how the practices of one medium anticipates and influences the other.
