Raring to refine your creative writing and dive into fascinating literature topics and time periods? Our English literature with creative writing degree allows just that. Sharpen your skills when writing poetry and short stories, and boost your critical reading. Be inspired by contemporary and classic works from world-renowned authors. We’ll cover theoretical and critical approaches and give you opportunities to apply them practically. You’ll look back at important texts, putting their key themes under the microscope. How do superstition, sexuality and religion contribute to Renaissance drama? How do authors develop in relation to the historical and cultural changes around them? We’ll show you how to read as a writer. You’ll also learn to reflect, which will develop your creative writing skills and philosophy. Find your style of writing and understand how to use language creatively to tell your tales. Gain transferable skills that will be invaluable during your degree and essential to future employers. In your final year, you can design, research and complete a dissertation on the literature topic of your choice.
Please visit our website for information on available modules.
You will be assessed through a combination of coursework and formal tests or examinations. This includes essays, short analyses, reports and close readings, oral presentations and group work for English Literature modules, alongside creative practice, critical practice and reflection for Creative Writing modules. Emphasis is placed on work produced in your own time or formally presented in class.
