Overview

Creative Writing aims to nurture your confidence as a writer and to support your development as a critical and skilful analyst of writing. You’ll also develop your commercial practice (writing for magazines, reviewing, scriptwriting, editing). Studying English Language allows you to see how language shapes our worlds, brings thoughts to life and forms our identities. Through academic study, you will investigate the many different factors that determine how English is spoken and written, while developing your own creative practice as a writer.

In combination, these two subject areas provide you with exciting opportunities to combine very different types of learning. You’ll have the opportunity to write for a range of different creative platforms, learn from guest speakers and publish your work. The course will provide a foundation for students who are interested in developing writing as a profession. You’ll gain an understanding of commercial markets and the publishing and creative industries, as well as how writers make a living.

Career opportunities

Creative Writing and English Language graduates may go on to work in sectors such as publishing, the media, marketing and communications. The course also provides an excellent basis for further study or for self-employment as a freelance writer.

Graduates from this course will also be very successful candidates for careers in teaching because of the emphasis on writing in the new English curricula. Many graduates of English Language will take a postgraduate education course as a fourth year of study and enter the teaching profession.

Others will find that the skills acquired through the study of English are particularly highly regarded in all professions where good communication skills are prized such as publishing, journalism, public relations, human resources and web-based communication.

English Language provides continuous opportunities to develop employability skills and includes work experience options. There is a range of opportunities to study for a semester abroad in Europe and the USA in the second semester of the second year.
