This flexible course will enable you to do both at the same time. Learning within a strongly creative community, you’ll be set for an intellectually stimulating experience that also develops valuable transferable skills.
In Literature modules you will cover topics from Shakespeare to contemporary fiction, fostering your appreciation, understanding and enjoyment of literary texts. You will produce independent interpretations of texts and concepts, and share your insights with others confidently.
In Creative Writing modules you will hone your craft as a writer with an emphasis on voice, structure and critical reflection. Workshops will allow you to reflect on your practice as you develop your own creative projects.
The course combines academic rigour with a concern for employability skills such as communication and analysis. Nine out of ten graduates are employed or in further study within six months of finishing the course, according to Unistats 2015.
With highly honed skills in communication and analysis, you will be ready to hit the ground running once you start a career. 90% of our graduates are employed or in further study within six months of finishing the course (Unistats 2015). There are logical career paths into writing, publishing, media, communications and advertising, but frequently our graduates also use their transferable skills to work in business, law and teaching, or to undertake postgraduate study.
Whatever you decide to do, you will have strong employability as a result of having acquired the characteristics of a Northumbria graduate. These include critical reflection and self-learning, collaboration and curiosity, and the ability to apply your knowledge to solve problems in ways that are sustainable and ethical.
