Studying English and Creative Writing subjects at Manchester allows you access to many themes, texts and theories, ranging from classical literature and creative writing, through to social media, the stage and even the role of English language in education.
Courses at Manchester explore English Literature, English Language, Linguistics and American Studies. Different periods are studied, including Victorian literature, 18th century and post-war texts, and courses include a range of media, including books, poems, drama, film and even music and TV.
Throughout the day, you’ll see how degrees in English and associated subjects create graduates with highly developed language and communication skills; a greater capacity for both team-working and independent working; and exceptional critical and analytical skills.
