Overview

Develop your skills as a writer and consider key theological questions and concepts

Qualify with a degree that gives you skills in creative writing alongside theological analysis, critical debate, and research. Our BA (Hons) Creative Writing and Theology degree allows you to learn, and then specialise in, a wide-range of creative writing disciplines including: fiction, novels, screenplays and creative non-fiction.

In addition, you can explore fundamental ethical and philosophical questions, and how to investigate the place of religion in society. You will learn from our team of practising and published poets, novelists, and screenwriters, as well as leading experts in the field of theology.

On this course you will:
