Our English Literature with Creative Writing degree hones your skills in literary analysis while helping you to develop your own creative voice. This English Literature with Creative Writing BA allows you to combine the two disciplines on a major/minor basis. In English Literature classes we cover fiction, poetry, drama and film with an emphasis on the period since 1800. In Creative Writing modules you'll be given the chance to produce your own work in these same genres. Over your time with us you'll be able to develop and explore your own areas of interest. You will also have the opportunity to undertake a work placement or dissertation.
