Creative Writing

A master's degree is a postgraduate academic degree. One must already have an undergraduate degree to apply for a master's program. Most master's degree program would require students to complete a master's thesis or research paper.

Creative writing at degree level grants two distinct but interrelated types of learning. The original part of a degree is the organised study of literary method, providing graduate student with a practice-based, experiential means of acquiring literary theory and knowledge.

Distance education or distance learning is a way of delivering education and instruction, often on an individual basis, to students who are not physically present on campus.
