You can take English Literature and Creative Writing of Cardiff Metropolitan University for professional development purposes, in order to enhance your career and to prepare your writing for publication. The MA will also help you specialise in the areas of creative practice in order to pave the way for doctoral study.
Many of our students use the course to generate and hone their own writing for publication. Our creative practice modules are designed with eventual publication in mind. Our assessments are designed around publication, performance and/or production. Several of our students have had publication and industry success (see below).
The MA is also a great choice for those wishing to enhance their employment and professional opportunities in editorial and publishing careers. The programme is suitable for those who would like to become teachers of English literature and creative writing as well as those who are already teachers. For example, teachers of English at 'A' Level and GCSE often find the course suitable for professional development purposes, providing them with skills to enhance their teaching of English literature creative writing within their current curricula.
Our MA is appropriate for those who would like careers in community-based education and practice. The course also prepares you for further study at PhD level at Cardiff Metropolitan University and beyond.
