Program Description

Creative Writing aims to nurture your confidence as a writer and to support your development as a critical and skilful analyst of writing. You'll also develop your commercial practice (writing for magazines, reviewing, scriptwriting, editing). Studying English Language allows you to see how language shapes our worlds, brings thoughts to life and forms our identities. Through academic study, you will investigate the many different factors that determine how English is spoken and written, while developing your own creative practice as a writer.

In combination, these two subject areas provide you with exciting opportunities to combine very different types of learning. You'll have the opportunity to write for a range of different creative platforms, learn from guest speakers and publish your work. The course will provide a foundation for students who are interested in developing writing as a profession. You'll gain an understanding of commercial markets and the publishing and creative industries, as well as how writers make a living.
