Course summary

One novel, two countries, two degrees, one combined master's programme, 100% writing joy

Overview

On Edinburgh Napier University’s dual degree collaboration with Seton Hill University, you’ll combine online and on-campus learning between two novel-worthy settings – Edinburgh and Pennsylvania.

You’ll begin Seton Hill University’s MFA in Writing Popular Fiction with a June on-campus residency in the gorgeous Laurel Highlands of southwestern Pennsylvania, where you’ll start writing and connect with a friendly, supportive writing community.

From there, you will spend a year (September to August) studying abroad on the MA Creative Writing programme at Edinburgh Napier University, while remaining an active part of Seton Hill’s online programme.

After satisfactorily completed all Edinburgh Napier University requirements, you’ll receive a Master of Arts in Creative Writing (and be well on your way to completing your novel).

You’ll then re-join your Seton Hill University friends at the next January on-campus residency in Greensburg, Pennsylvania. From this point onwards you will continue in the Seton Hill program.

Assessments

Assessments focus on practical creative challenges and achieving professional levels of critical reflection, enabling students to become more self-sufficient as writers and collaborative practitioners.

Tasks includes crafting original short stories; creating pre-writing materials for full-length narratives; critical self-reflection on your work; keeping a learning journal of progress through one-to-one mentoring; plus developing strategies and content for teaching, public engagement events, and digital self-publishing.
