Course summary

“Every writer is first a reader, and what we read matters.” – Sarah Ahmed Reading is a radical act which has the power to transform our thoughts, ideas and behaviours. Writing presses further, empowering us to investigate, experiment and articulate what really matters. Doing both can benefit the world. Our BA (Hons) English and Creative Writing degree will help you find and develop your voice as both a writer and a critic. The great authors you study will inspire and influence your writing. Meanwhile, developing your own creative work will lead to new insights into technique which, in turn, will sharpen your analysis of literary texts. In seminars you will be invited to consider the ways in which literature and writing is alive, engaging with contemporary issues like gender inequality, decolonisation, climate change and more. It’s not just about close reading and writing craft at Cardiff Met - you’ll also learn vital professional skills. During your degree, you’ll have the chance to compete in our poetry SLAM competitions; read your work at open mic nights; meet published writers and creative practitioners; volunteer at local literary events and festivals; submit your work to our student-led anthology; and much more. A passion for literature and creative writing can lead to exciting careers in publishing, editing, teaching, law, public relations, civil service, arts management and countless other fields. Through your modules, projects and extracurricular activities, you’ll leave with a portfolio of work that demonstrates your finely-honed skills and abilities. Like so many of our graduates, you will leave Cardiff Met ready for a career in the creative industries and beyond. This course is subject to validation in 2022.
