This course will give you a sophisticated understanding of literature and the creative resources and technical skills needed to produce exciting new work in a variety of genres and for a range of media, including radio, web and audio.
This is a truly modern English course that helps you respond to the demands of a content-hungry media industry for flexible, entrepreneurial, writers who combine traditional and contemporary expertise.
Why choose this course?
Contemporary writers rarely work in a single specific form or medium, and the successful modern writer's professional portfolio should span multiple formats. This exciting new course aims to prepare you for a successful career by building your creative, analytical and professional skills.
Studying a joint honours modular degree such as this allows you to tailor your studies to suit your interests and to develop a specialism in an area of creative writing. This approach will help to develop high calibre, motivated graduates, equipped with the confidence and flexibility to thrive in the dynamic media landscape.
Additionally, you will gain valuable work experience in your second year, in a placement related to your core literary interests or in the area with which you are combining English. Students typically gain work in the areas of publishing, radio or film.
Career and study progression
Your degree can take you anywhere, but some of the most popular careers for graduates include television, film (especially screenwriting), publishing, research and journalism.
You may also wish to undertake postgraduate study to specialise in a subject you've already studied, or to explore something new.
