English Language and Creative Professional Writing integrated joint provides an opportunity for students to develop their own talent for writing, alongside a disciplined engagement with English language study. The programme offers a supported, stimulating and multicultural environment in which students can create, analyse and interpret different forms and styles of writing. It gives students a thorough understanding of the development of English from its roots to its position as an international language, and of the sheer variety of spoken and forms of the language.
The Creative Professional Writing and English Language degree will enable students to communicate more effectively in writing, and enable them to enhance their own creative and critical judgement. Students will also develop a range of subject specific and transferable skills, including higher order conceptual and communication skills, enterprise, digital literacy and IT awareness, all of which are of immense value in graduate employment.
