This degree enables you to feed your passion for the written word while developing essential communication skills which are highly valued by employers. We want you to be inspired by literature, from classic to contemporary works, and will introduce you to influential theoretical and critical approaches. You will also be encouraged to live the writing life and learn to read as a writer, developing creative writing skills and a creative philosophy, underpinned by reflection. The programme is ideal if you have a passion for reading and writing and a desire to know more about the motivations and impact of literature on societies. You will explore the ideas that lie behind published literature in all its forms and demonstrate how to use language creatively through your own compositions.
