Program Description

On the bachelor in Writing and English Literature (with Foundation) (BA) at Anglia Ruskin University (ARU), you will explore professional writing techniques and learn to write compelling narratives whether you want to write poetry, drama, short fiction, news, features, or something else. You’ll improve your writing skills with invaluable feedback from professional writers, and workshops with your fellow students.

You’ll also find out how English literature is shaped by its historical and cultural context, and how, in turn, it influences individual readers and the whole of society. You’ll also learn about many other subjects, including history, politics, religion, psychology, and the history of art, which will enrich your writing. Your deeper understanding of literary texts will improve your abilities as a writer.
