Employability is a key focus within the department and we enjoy excellent collaborative relationships with professional partners in film, television, theatre, literature and new media. As well as studying texts from a variety of critical, theoretical and historical perspectives, our students make films, perform poetry, develop screenplays, write novels and create television programmes. Their work can be found in theatres, in libraries, at festivals, in cinemas, on television screens, in newspapers, classrooms, online and in bookshops.
