What will I learn?

Immerse yourself in the ideas that shape the world we live in.

Investigate and analyse ideas, communicate your findings and build your knowledge base in a variety of areas with a BA. In many instances you will also gain first-hand experience of how to apply what you learn through practical topics, placements and internship opportunities.

Creative Writing

Stories are an integral part of being human. They tell our history, aspirations, ideas and emotions. With a major in Creative Writing, you’ll learn to write in a range of genres and modes, making use of different mediums and technology. You’re sure to find your voice as you develop a portfolio work-practising your new skills and receiving feedback from your peers and published, award-winning teachers. By the time you graduate, you’ll be ready for an exciting career in the arts and communication industries.
