English Language and Creative Studies offers a balance of practical and critical tasks, introducing students to creative practice studies and the critical study of creative practices in combination with a study of English Language. In Creative Studies you will explore a variety of creative forms, specialising increasingly as you progress through the degree in that form you find most interesting and rewarding (e.g. film, creative writing, theatre and drama, media or new media, journalism).

Much of your study will be done in small group teaching.
