Overview

Studying English Literature and Creative Writing in combination allows you to develop your skills as a writer, whilst setting your own work and aspirations in the context of the wider literary world.

Our BA programme introduces you to a broad range of types and periods of literature, with a huge range of different areas to pursue, from medieval literature to twenty-first-century digital literary culture. These include unparalleled resources for the study of Shakespeare. You will be given a foundation in all main genres of creative writing: poetry, prose, drama and media writing. Alongside this, you will explore the professional aspects of contemporary writing and editing and will be supported in finding your own ‘voice’. You will be taught by award winning writers and benefit from regular guest talks by visiting writers.
