Course Summary:
Combine an understanding of the many ways writers reflect and shape the world around them with the skills to communicate effectively in Modern Standard Arabic and you’ll open a whole world of opportunities. English: Rise to the challenge of English and you’ll set off on an exciting intellectual journey to a future filled with creative possibilities. This course takes an innovative, modern approach to literature, focusing on drama, prose, fiction and poetry from the 17th century to the present – balancing the traditional with the modern. Flexibility is key to our approach and as your course progresses you’ll be able to choose course units to suit your own particular interests, such as creative writing, film and cultural theory. Or why not focus geographically and culturally on writing from the USA, Ireland, Africa, India and the Caribbean? And in your final year, you’ll get a chance to spread your wings with a substantial piece of project work that presents a thesis, building on the skills you’ve been developing over previous years. Our lively department is staffed by internationally renowned writers and critics, and there’s a strong research culture, creating a learning environment that is both supportive and intellectually challenging. And with our extensive cultural links both in Manchester and further afield, you’ll be in the right place to begin building a creative network for your future. Modern Standard Arabic: Arabic is spoken as the first language for over 200 million people; it is the official language of 22 countries (bbc.co.uk). The demand for studying Arabic has recently increased due to increased economic opportunities in the Middle East and North Africa. Admissions from Beginners to GCSE only.
