Course summary

Overview

This course is an exciting new qualification for graduates and professionals interested in studying, researching, and teaching writing.

The focus of the course is on writing, rhetoric, and literacies research, and on how this research can inform the teaching of writing and writing development. The course programme builds upon the strength of the Centre for Academic Writing in the teaching of and research into academic writing, as well as Coventry University’s pioneering establishment of a Centre for Academic Writing.

Course information

The course begins by teaching key pedagogies for supporting academic writing for both study and professional writing purposes.

It also provides grounding in the theories and practices of how to set up and manage a writing centre, programme, or initiative. The course then offers in-depth learning about how to support postgraduates, academics, and researchers in writing for publication in English, and about how to develop students’ writing in the disciplines. Importantly, you will also learn how to research academic writing.

In the final semester of the MA, you will write a dissertation or portfolio based on an individually chosen research project, to inform your professional development.

Career prospects

Successful completion of this course will enhance your career prospects for working with students, academics, and other colleagues through supporting, teaching and carrying out research on academic writing.

This course combines the theory and practice necessary for working effectively as a writing developer in writing centres, learning centres, staff development centres, and research centres, and for providing writing support in disciplinary or workplace contexts, in the UK and internationally.

It will also prepare you to undertake research and doctoral study in the fields of Academic Writing, Composition and Rhetoric, Education, or a related field.
