Course summary

Our Creative Writing and Media BA allows you to develop your own creative potential with words while also getting to grips with analysing media. You’ll enhance your practical, transferable skills through improving your writing, communication and research capabilities.

Course overview

Creative Writing emphasises the importance of engaging with the wider world of literature in order to develop your own writing. You’ll have the opportunity to study brilliant writing from the past, as well as learning from contemporary creative practitioners. Our course is led by a team of exciting, award-winning writers, and we also have a lively programme of visiting writers and guest speakers. As a student here, you’ll be part of the York Centre for Writing, a hub for innovative new creative work with strong links to the wider literary community and to the publishing industry. Through events such as the York Literature Festival, our students benefit from studying and learning directly from internationally-acclaimed writers. Recent Festival and University guest writers have included Margaret Atwood; award-winning poets Simon Armitage and Daljit Nagra; Booker-nominated York novelist Fiona Mozley; innovative graphic novelist and illustrator Graham Rawle; and Bradford noir-writer A.A. Dhand. We also have regular visits from industry professionals and innovators, including agents, publishers and literary activists.

The Media course recieved a 100% satisfaction rate in the 2018 National Student Survey. The course combines critical and theoretical aspects with practical design and marketing elements as you progress. Studying Media at York St John University involves considering the way Media has shaped our culture and includes elements of Philosophy, Sociology and Politics. This broad approach allows you to decide on what really interests and choose your own path as to what you want to develop as your expertise. This includes being taught by professional designers as well as lecturers who will guide you in your studies. Of course we include opportunities to visit cultural hubs such as galleries, cinemas and other media centres and also you can also get involved with an international field trip.
