The first year will introduce you to key elements and concepts in both subjects. You’ll develop your skills with a broad curriculum of core modules in Creative Writing and English Literature, plus one cross-disciplinary module.
Alongside core modules in both subjects, you’ll be able to choose from a selection of Creative Writing and English Literature modules that cover a wide range of genres and topics, including a number that emphasise working with cultural industries or local communities.
The final year follows the mix of required and optional modules from year two, but with an additional emphasis on independent writing and research. You’ll write a piece of extended creative writing in the form of your choice, and in your English studies, you can choose from a variety of final projects (previously, students have created digital resources, worked at literary festivals and produced educational materials, to name a few examples).
