Our Honours courses are listed with those of English, but a Cinema Studies Honours year focuses on film topics and has specific prerequisites.

Cinema Studies Honours students study ENGL444, ENGL445 and ENGL480 (Research Essay) and one optional course. ENGL442 (Directed Reading and Writing) is frequently chosen as a fourth Honours course because it allows Cinema Studies students to work collaboratively on film-based projects. 

ENGL444: Women/Theory/Film

In this course Mary Wiles considers the changing place of women in film - as spectacle and cultural commodity, as spectators and consumers, but also as creators and theorists.

ENGL 445: The Essay Film

Taught by Alan Wright, this course focuses on a hybrid genre which troubles conventional distinctions between documentary and fiction, as the model for a new mode of critical practice.
