Our Creative Writing with English Language Studies course allows you to achieve all these things and more. On this rewarding three-year programme, you progress through a structured series of workshops and assignments covering key genres, evolving as a writer at your own pace and finding your own individual path. Along the way you learn how your work relates to wider literary, cultural, social and political contexts. And your written output is bolstered by positive critical encouragement and direction from our expert staff throughout. By delving into your own use of language and that of others you can find your unique voice and understand how it fits into wider society. Alongside this, you consider topics such as discourse analysis and sociolinguistics and may choose to explore fields such as language acquisition and forensic linguistics. In Year 1, you are guided through a series of assignments covering writing genres from fiction to creative non-fiction, scriptwriting and poetry, and introduced to linguistics and language study. In Year 2, you home in on elements of different genres such as writing for children, media writing, poetry, song and play, film and TV script, discourse analysis, language and identity. In Year 3, you explore the relationships between writing and the world beyond the University, looking to publishing, producing, community audiences, writing and teaching, and cognitive stylistics. You can specialise even further by following your own research interests with an extended independent study project on an area of your choice. The course arms you with some fantastic transferable skills, such as confident and compelling storytelling, critical thinking and articulate expression. These abilities are valued in a variety of employment contexts including arts and entertainment as well as business and commerce. With a thorough grounding in language and fresh insights into creativity, our graduates find careers in corporate communication, journalism, teaching, PR, advertising, social media communications and writing for display.
