English and Film Studies are adaptable subjects which open up a flexible range of career options. A wide-ranging knowledge of the arts, literature, and popular culture produces well-rounded individuals with a broad frame of reference. Many of our graduates enter jobs in teaching, publishing, journalism, the media, arts administration, library and information services, management, consultancy, the civil service, and the creative industries.

“The best thing about the English and Film Studies course at the University of Dundee is the absolutely range of subjects you get to study within this. My favourite memory about studying at the University of Dundee is the close relationships I formed with my lecturers. You really get to know everyone on campus - Lecturers included! Since graduating from the University of Dundee, I have started a Graduate Placement with Dumfries and Galloway Council within the Communities directorate. My English and Film Studies degree has equipped me with a diverse set of skills that I have been able to take with me into a professional working environment. I also got out of my degree the ability to think creatively and the confidence to take an ‘out of the box’ approach to the work I am tasked with.”
