Course summary

This exciting degree course is aimed at students who want to combine their writing skills with media production, including television, radio, print and digital journalism, and media practice. This course will enable you to develop a personal creative practice as a writer, offering imaginative approaches to many areas of writing and critical insights into literary and professional contexts. Taught by research experts and published writers, this course will equip you with a solid grounding in the practical skills you need to build a writing career. Our Media Studies and Creative Writing degree will therefore help you to find your voice, both critically and creatively, as you develop an in-depth understanding of world media, and literary genres and forms. Since media and creative writing are increasingly becoming more dynamic as digital and social media platforms develop, this degree will show you how you can take part in, and shape, these developments. ‘Placement Year’ and 'International Experience Year’ options are available for this course. You will have the opportunity to fully consider these options when you have started your course at Bangor and can make an application for a transfer onto such a pathway at the appropriate time. You can find more information about these options on our website and if you have any questions, please get in touch. If you don’t have the required qualifications for this degree-level course or are looking to re-enter education after time away from study, then a Foundation Year Programme might be the right choice for you. Please see Media Studies and Production (with Foundation Year) P31F or English Language and English Literature (with Foundation Year) QQCF.
