Course summary

Develop your own creative writing while engaging in intensive study of critical theory.

Our MA is driven by the sense that the critical and the creative are necessarily intertwined. It has grown out of longstanding teaching and research interests in:

  • creative writing
  • psychoanalysis
  • cultural materialism
  • eco-writing
  • postcolonialism
  • deconstruction
  • feminism
  • queer theory.

Our faculty includes professional authors and researchers of international standing. Your teaching is underpinned by the interdisciplinary research carried out in the Centre for Creative and Critical Thought.

CAREERS

At Sussex, you gain skills in critical assessment and written communication while also developing your abilities in problem solving and independent thinking. Creative and Critical Writing graduates often use these skills in careers in:

  • publishing, journalism and editing
  • libraries, teaching and consultancy
  • media, marketing and events management.

Other graduates have gone on to do further research and work in academia.
