In the English Language modules, you will consider questions such as ‘what is language?
’ and learn about how it is structured and articulated.
You will encounter a wide range of assessment opportunities, including project work, organising events and publications, giving presentations, and developing reflective writing.
In English Language, assessment methods vary from module to module.
There are also modules which provide exciting critical and creative perspectives: Writing Genres and Experimental Writing: Theory and Practice.
The aim of our Creative Writing teaching is to help you to become a better writer.
We do this by helping you to understand how literary texts work, which means reading and analysing texts as well as practising writing your own original creative work.
We use a combination of different methods of delivery to help achieve this: you’ll find that you are supported to share your work-in-progress in regular workshop settings, so that you get used to developing and re-working your writing with feedback.
Creative Writing is a highly interactive discipline: discussions, debates, peer-feedback, and writing activities are a crucial part of the learning process.
We do not want students to be passive learners, but instead expect you to be actively engaged and involved with your degree subject.
