This is one of several specialist routes available in our #BA (Honours) Arts and Humanities[R14]#. The degree starts by developing your understanding of the world we live in through a variety of perspectives, periods and subjects - including art history, classical studies, creative writing, English language, English literature, history, modern languages, music, philosophy and religious studies. You'll then take two specialist creative writing modules, exploring a range of approaches to writing. You will develop your writing skills in several genres including fiction; poetry; life writing; and scriptwriting for film, radio and stage. Through being supported to develop your own pieces of writing, and by engagement with the module materials, you will develop important skills in complex argument and critical commentary.Alongside your study of creative writing, you can also study a second specialism from some of the subjects listed above, entitling you to include both subjects in the name of your degree, or complete your degree with modules chosen from a wide range of options. This qualification develops your learning in four main areas:
- Knowledge and understanding
- Cognitive skills
- Practical and professional skills
- Key skills
The level and depth of your learning gradually increases as you work through the qualification. You'll be supported throughout by the OU's unique style of teaching and assessment - which includes a personal tutor to guide and comment on your work; top quality course texts; e-learning resources like podcasts, interactive media and online materials; tutorial groups and community forums.
