Course Introduction

The English with Film Studies BA course is an inter-departmental course that covers a broad range subjects, from medieval literature to contemporary literary and film and creative writing. It combines a variety of approaches, including contemporary critical and cultural theory, close textual and technical examination and historical scholarship. We aim to offer open and imaginative approaches to classic literary and film texts together with newer and less familiar developments in both disciplines. The course is a three-year study programme that comprises modules totalling 360 credits. Each year, you will take modules totalling 120 credits, with the additional option of studying abroad for part of the second year. In your second and third years you will enjoy great flexibility in your choice of optional modules, enabling you to indepth study on those areas that most interest you.

Teaching style

We use lectures, seminars and group tutorials to deliver most of the modules on the programme. You will also be expected to undertake a significant amount of independent study. You will be assigned a personal tutor who will provide support and guidance for your studies.


The primary methods of assessment for this course are coursework, oral presentations and written examinations.


The majority of learning for this degree takes place at the King’s College London Strand Campus. Please note that locations are determined by where each module is taught and may vary depending on the optional modules you select.
