Within our School we offer five programmes—English Literature, Film, Theatre, Media Studies, and Art History—all which treat the arts of expression in the full range of media (textual, visual, theatrical, cinematic, televised, and digital). There is a fascinating range of undergraduate and Honours courses to choose from and we also host a dynamic community of students at MA and PhD levels.  You will be taught by our experienced and innovative lecturers and researchers who publish their work as books, journal articles, films, productions, and exhibitions.


Staff and postgraduate students are actively involved in a variety of research
