English and Creative Writing - Manchester Metropolitan University

Get a joint honours in creativity with a combined degree that takes reading and writing to the very highest levels of professionalism. Our celebrated Creative Writing courses are taught by world-renowned writers from the Manchester Writing School; one of the most successful of its kind in the UK, with more than 85 graduates and MA students who’ve gone on to become published writers. But skilled writers must also be well developed readers and this course offers the best of both worlds, allowing you to combine Creative Writing and English as part of a joint degree. While studying and practising Creative Writing, you’ll take a range of options from the English degree, including American literature, film, television and cultural studies. As you progress, you’ll have the chance to focus on creative writing workshops focusing on two out of three of prose, poetry and script. And in the final year you’ll be ready to undertake an all-important independent creative project. By the time you leave us, you’ll have an excellent understanding of the critical and cultural contexts in which you’re writing, together with the skills and experience to excel in the creative journey from original idea to finished work.
