Attracting students from around the world, the flexible MA Writing from the University of Warwick in writing offers two possible pathways:
- Route A (Taught): Five modules (Research for Writing, an Optional Core in writing, plus three others), in which a wide range of written work is produced. Part-time students on Route A will normally take two taught modules (one per term) plus Research for Writing in Year 1 and two taught modules (one per term) in Year 2.
- Route B (Long Project): Three modules (Research for Writing, an Optional Core in writing, plus one other module), plus a long written project in any genre which the Programme is able to supervise. Permission to follow the Long Project route depends on an assessment of your prior experience of writing and of a proposal submitted before the course begins, as well as on the availability of a qualified supervisor(s), who will supervise you during the spring and summer terms. Part-time students on Route B will normally take two taught modules (one per term) plus Research for Writing in Year 1 and work on their Long Project in Year 2.
