Course summary

When you study literature you are not just reading and thinking about great books, you are also asking questions about society’s past and future, and ultimately interrogating your own past and future.During your time here you will be studying literature from the Renaissance to the present day, all within the vicinity of Horace Walpole’s Gothic mansion, Strawberry Hill House, which is located on our campus.The programme has a traditional and rigorous core of compulsory modules covering: Tragedy, Critical Theory, Renaissance Literature (including Shakespeare), Romanticism and Modernism. The literary training provided ensures that you will cover the conventional ‘classics’ meticulously.You will develop skills that will complement the unique and innovative optional units, which you can tailor to your interests and passions.There's no snobbery in the teaching of creative writing at St Mary’s. Our job is simply to make you the best writer you can be. We're open to all kinds of writers with a wide array of interests, from science fiction to screenplays and from rap to romance. You tell us what you want to write and we will help you to write it as well as you can.There's only one way to write, and that is to write. Perhaps that sounds like circular reasoning, but it’s the fundamental truth about the craft. In the Creative and Professional Writing programme we want you to write. A lot. Because if you love writing, and we assume you must, then you just have to sit down and get to it.
