Location : Streatham Campus, Exeter
MA students are an integral part of the flourishing writing culture within the Department, with regular extra-curricular writing workshops to develop work in progress, regular research seminars and regular visits from distinguished scholars and speakers.
We will prepare you for entry into the professions of writing, across a range of genres and provide opportunities for you to publish work by introducing you to national and international publications, publishing and broadcast media professionals and Literary Agents and Editors.
There is a special emphasis within the Department of English upon interdisciplinarity. Creative Writing as practice is studied alongside literature of the 20th and 21st centuries and in relation to other cultural products in different media – for example, the comparative development of creative writing and film.
A degree in English, whether studied at our campus in Exeter or in Penryn, can provide you with an excellent general understanding of language, literature and culture. For our graduates, it opens up career paths in related areas such as teaching, publishing and the media as well providing a path to other areas such as the Civil Service, business, law and management.
