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).
