This innovative and unique degree allows you to pursue an interest in a variety of related subject areas such as Professional Writing, Film Studies, Theatre and Performance Studies, Journalism, Media, and New Media Studies. It aims to develop your critical and intellectual abilities as well as allowing you the opportunity to engage and explore many different areas of creative practice. This combination, a meeting of the critical and the creative, allows you to pursue interconnected themes and ideas within different creative and/or critical fields, or to follow through specific genre or creative practice interests, or to contrast and compare those areas across your degree programme.
You can combine modules from any of the following subject areas run by the School of Creative Studies and Media:

Practical modules will be assessed both on practical output and on the individual's ability to reflect critically on their practice. Other modules are assessed by exam and assignment and frequently also offer the opportunity to submit practical work as an element of assessment. As you progress through the degree, much of your study will be done in small teaching groups with an emphasis on learning both group work skills and the ability to carry a piece of work through yourself from initial concept to completion.
You can study Creative Studies as a Joint Honours Degree with one of the following subjects (see Single or Joint Honours for explanation): English Language, French (4 years), German (4 years), Italian (4 years), Linguistics, Music, Spanish (4 years)
It is possible to study Creative Studies with Law, UCAS code W9M1 BA/CSWL. Please note that as Law is the minor element of this degree scheme, this course is not a Qualifying Law degree. Please contact us for details.
Our graduates work in the film, theatre, media and creative industries, in teaching, in arts development, in film programming, film making and scheduling, and in other fields where their ability to engage critically and creatively with a range of artistic disciplines is seen to be of considerable importance. Several graduates each year go on to develop their work further with us through a period of postgraduate study, where once again the School uniquely offers a combination of critical and creative approaches to the study of film and film practice.
