Program Description

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 you 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.
