Do you have a passion for language? Do you enjoy expressing yourself in words? If you’re looking to take your talent further, then we’ll give you the chance to see what you could achieve. On the course you’ll be taught by tutors who are actively involved in writing and getting their work published. They’re passionate about their subject, and will focus on giving you the opportunity to explore your own talents. You’ll be encouraged to develop your writing across a whole range of creative media, including theatre, film, television and radio as well as fiction and poetry. In your first year we’ll look at both English language and creative writing. Then once the year is over you’ll be able to choose how you want to specialise for the next two years of your degree. Your learning will extend beyond the classroom, as we’ll also get you out in the field to visit key locations. You could visit the nearby Bronte Parsonage in Haworth, or go to the British Library. Every year students also have the chance to attend events at the Huddersfield Literature Festival. In your second year, you’ll also have the opportunity to take a placement for five weeks, as part of the ‘Language in the Workplace’ module. You’ll have the chance to see how the language skills you’ve learnt on the course can be applied in the working environment. Recent graduates have taken placements at Pen and Sword Books, Quest Media, Maiden-voyage.com, M-Four Translation (Manchester City Council) and primary and secondary schools. The ERASMUS+ exchange scheme also offers a short-term opportunity to study abroad at one of our partner universities, including institutions in Ghent, Paris, Malaga, the USA and Hanover. You’ll join classes and receive credits towards your degree at the same time.
