Passion for language and creative writing can lead to exciting careers in publishing, advertising, teaching, journalism and more.
Sharpen your writing skills, free your imagination, let your creative juices flow and be inspired in the company of poets, playwrights, publishers, screenwriters and novelists.
The English and Creative Writing BA (Hons) course is for students who wish to study creative writing alongside English literature and language, which provides them with an option to embark on a career as a professional writer, or to go into more traditional careers linked to English studies such as marketing, publishing or teaching.
The course combines stylistics, language and literary theory with creative practice, combining both critical and creative thinking.
The creative part of the course includes poetry and descriptive prose in the first year, exploring the use of figurative language in the form of poetry and travel writing. In the second year, you will have the opportunity to explore short fiction for both adults and children, and in the final year you will have the opportunity to explore script writing for film, stage and radio.
