Course summary

TEF Silver

University of Brighton has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.

Find out more about the TEF.

This degree allows you to explore a wide range of approaches to reading texts while developing your own expressive writing skills. You will study texts in context with an emphasis on writing – critical or creative – as practice. You will be encouraged to develop a sense of yourself as an autonomous, critical and analytical reader and writer, building on your strengths as you negotiate your own pathway through the degree. A distinctive element of the course is the way it combines an analysis of the differing roles the written word plays across cultures with the opportunity to apply this analysis in your work. You will be encouraged to produce and practise critical and creative work through modules, community work, a volunteering programme with local schools, participation in local events, and student societies such as the Literature and Drama societies. There is the opportunity to spend your third year abroad as part of the Erasmus programme.
