Course summary

Creative and Professional Writing with Media seeks to provide an active, supported and stimulating environment in which students can confidently experiment with and develop different forms and styles of writing. The programme offers a disciplined engagement with both creative and professional writing, teaching the art of writing within a range of media from radio, TV and newspapers to multimedia platforms and mobile phones. The study of Creative and Professional Writing with Media will help you develop the ability to communicate more effectively in writing; you will learn about the ways in which media shape both our understanding of the world, and our perceptions of our place in that world.The Foundation year prepares students for university level study. Successful completion of our Foundation course permits access to any of our Humanities or Media BA (Hons) degree courses, which include English, English Language, Creative Writing, Linguistics, Media, Philosophy and Religious Studies — many of which can be taken singly as specialist degrees or together as ‘joint’ degree routes. The Foundation year begins with modules aimed at providing transferable study skills and then, in the second semester, gives students the opportunity to study more specialist modules, with a focus on various aspects of Humanities and Media.The course also seeks to enable independent critical thinking and judgement, and to hone students' powers of imagination and invention in the creation of literary and non-literary texts. Students will develop a range of subject specific and transferable skills, including higher order communication skills, IT awareness and digital literacy, of immense value in graduate employment.
