There’s a strong emphasis on honing your own writing skills, whether that’s in creative writing, journalism or academic work, opening the door to an exciting range of career possibilities.

The course is designed to give you a strong foundation in the academic study of English, while equipping you with professional skills to enhance your employability. Alongside the study of texts in print, you’ll be introduced to the latest developments in digital media and new media storytelling.
