FIVE REASONS TO CHOOSE CREATIVE WRITING AND HERITAGE: • Academically and creatively challenging: we aim to nurture your creative talent across a range of different forms - including short stories, screenplays, poetry, drama and novels. • We give you the opportunity to develop an understanding of the world of publishers focusing on your research and editing skills and exploring key aspects of publication. • The programme in Heritage Studies will offer an innovative approach to study that combines an exploration of general and broadly based Heritage issues, with more specialist or particular aspects of the field. • We take an immersive approach to learning offering a diverse range of teaching approaches, including lectures, seminars, tutorials and workshop sessions. • You will attend small-group classes with a focus on discussion and learning activities to encourage the self-development and critical reflection accepted as key to the development of personal and professional capacities.
This degree combines the academic study of Creative Writing and Heritage Studies. In Creative Writing, alongside the form and genre options, you will take modules in research and archiving, following which you will create a major piece of work, which may lead to publication. Throughout your three years you will have regular contact with, and support from, a range of different writers. The programme will also equip students with an understanding and appreciation of the wider field of Heritage, which includes a compulsory work placement at level 5 and time in the Roderic Bowen Library and Archives at level 6. This provides students with both an attractive approach to study as well as equipping them with an appropriate set of skills and understandings applicable to a broad range of employments in the Heritage sector or cultural industries. There is a strong sense of community among students and staff, and the ratio of staff to students is such that students can access their lecturers when needed. The small classes are always friendly and never intimidating, allowing staff to know their students on a first-name basis.
The programme is assessed in a variety of ways and will include several of the following type of assessment: essays of 1000 to 4000 words in length, document analyses, book reviews, short reports and reflective journals, timed tests, take home exams, field journals, posters, group and individual presentations, dissertations of 10,000 words, wikis, commentaries and film evaluations.
