English Literature and Creative Writing University of Brighton

Undergraduate

This course is for students who are passionate about literature and want to apply their critical reading and research skills to their diverse and imaginative writing.

You will link your awareness of technique, form and craft in literature to your unique style of writing, and consider a wide variety of texts in relation to political, social and cultural theories in order to inform and enhance your own work.

Our award-winning tutors will help you to become a motivated thinker and writer with excellent critical and creative writing skills.

We work with local publishers and writers to develop your understanding of the craft. We also have specific modules that allow you to work with a community group or company in order to develop your writing and reflect critically on your practice and the life skills you are acquiring whilst on your degree.

There is the opportunity to spend your third year abroad as part of the Erasmus programme.
