Course summary

With our creative writing and English literature degree, you'll explore great literary works and be inspired to find your own creative voice. Our degree in creative writing and English literature explores literature, drama, poetry, fiction, visual art and theatre, mostly from 1800 onwards. You will examine the works themselves and the social and historical contexts in which they were written. The creative writing aspects of the course complement this, enabling you to focus on writing fiction, poetry, performance writing, playwriting, screenwriting and journalism. Popular career options for our creative writing and English literature graduates include professional writing, research, teaching, journalism, publishing and arts administration. You can continue your studies or move into areas such as teaching with one of our postgraduate degrees. What you should know about this course
