Inverness Campus, Virtual Learning Environment (VLE)


Are you passionate about reading and interested in the study of literature, but also keen on developing your own creative writing? If so, this exciting new degree gives you the chance to do both.

You will explore literature in a global context, looking in-depth at language and literary history within texts and on the international literary stage. You will also receive a solid grounding in the creative principles, in both form and structure, of four of the main areas of creative writing: poetry, prose, playwriting and the screenplay. You will explore how these can inform and support other areas of professional writing in gaming, advertising, marketing, vlogs etc.
