Course summary

English with Creative Writing at Queen's brings together a variety of specialist approaches under a single subject heading. The degree provides an introduction to poetry, prose fiction and scriptwriting, focusing on the rules of successful creative writing through the study and application of a series of set texts to students' own writing. Our literature modules encourage students to look at a writer's works in the context of the historical period, the cultural background, and the literary genres to which these works belong. Our language modules encompass the study of language structure and function, including the day-to-day use of the language and the major influences which have shaped it over the last millennium and a half.
