Program Description

Studying for a Joint Honours degree in Creative Writing and English Literature gives you the opportunity to combine your own development as a writer with academic study of literary texts in English. The two courses offer complementary yet contrasting approaches to thinking about writing and the dynamic, multi-faceted contexts of its production.

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) and your understanding of the publishing industry. Studying English Literature allows you to develop skills in close and creative reading, theoretical concepts and a critical awareness of the relationship between texts and their contexts.
