Program Description

The course begins by teaching key pedagogies for supporting academic writing for both study and professional writing purposes. It also provides grounding in the theories and practices of how to set up and manage a writing centre, programme, or initiative. The course then offers in-depth learning about how to support postgraduates, academics, and researchers in writing for publication in English, and about how to develop students’ writing in the disciplines. Importantly, you will also learn how to research academic writing.

Students in the final term of the MA will write a dissertation or portfolio based on an individually chosen research project, to inform their professional development.
