Course summary

**Combine the study of literature with the practice of creative writing. You’ll graduate with the ability to be curious about literature, and the imagination to turn that curiosity into creativity.**This flexible programme allows you to choose topics related to American literature and culture, comparisons of literature across different cultures and art forms (also known as Comparative Literature), and study diverse aspects of language use in linguistics modules. Your literary and creative studies will be supported by lectures and seminars which will give you practical advice to help you improve your essay writing and refine your research strategies.**Why study BA English with Creative Writing at Goldsmiths?**- You’ll read key literary texts, and experiment with writing prose and poetry.
