Are you passionate about reading and interested in the study of literature, but also keen on developing your own creative writing? If so, this exciting new degree gives you the chance to do both.
You will explore literature in a global context, looking in-depth at language and literary history within texts and on the international literary stage. You will also receive a solid grounding in the creative principles, in both form and structure, of four of the main areas of creative writing: poetry, prose, playwriting and the screenplay. You will explore how these can inform and support other areas of professional writing in gaming, advertising, marketing, vlogs etc.
Taught by experienced staff from a variety of literary, creative and professional backgrounds, you will cover a wide range of authors, in English and translation, as well as theory from classic to contemporary. With a solid foundation in genres and periods in years one and two, and research-based modules in years three and four, you will become a confident and enthusiastic writer, researcher and reader.
Residentials take place twice each year and you will be required to self-fund any travel to these and cover accommodation and subsistence costs.
