This degree gives you the opportunity to translate creative interests into a fully accredited postgraduate programme of study, with flexibility and individual needs built into its delivery. It has been created and is directed by Professor Kirsty Gunn, an award winning international author whose work has been translated and published in a number of territories all over the world.
The programme is distinctive in its approach and teaching, and highly engaged in the world of contemporary publishing, offering students the opportunity to meet with writers and publishers from around the UK and beyond and to take part in the varied and exciting range of literary activities, from performing their own work to being "showcased" at Dundee's Literary Festival.
You will normally be expected to have a 2:1 honours degree in any subject. Applicants with alternative qualifications and/or relevant experience may also be considered. All applicants should submit a piece of their creative writing - a poem or short piece of prose (no more than three pages).
