Overview

In addition to studying how the language works in its spoken and written forms, and the different kinds of English that exist today, the Creative Writing and English Language (Honours) degree offered at the University of Westminster provides structured support and guidance in the development of writing skills in various genres (the novel, the short story, poetry, drama, and non-fictional writing).

Your knowledge and understanding of English will be enhanced by focusing on its aesthetic possibilities. The course will also equip you with the transferable and cognitive skills necessary for lifelong personal and professional development.

This particular combination is suitable for those interested in pursuing a career in any field that involves the highly skilled use of language, such as publishing or journalism, professional writing, or teaching. You could also go on to a career that includes teaching related to language or creative writing.
