What you will study?Taught by a diverse range of academics, writers, publishers and media practitioners, this course is divided into five modules taken over three terms (if studied full time). Each module is designed to be flexible, allowing you to bring your own writing interests and projects to the assignments while extending the boundaries of your current practice through self-reflection, research, analysis, and creative exploration.
There are two core modules on this course and additional module options covering more specialist areas of Writing for Creative and Professional Practice. The first two core modules are compulsory and you are required to take two further optional modules for a PG Diploma, plus a 60 credit Dissertation for the full MA.
