Literature, creative writing and film studies

Short courses

Courses in literature, creative writing and film enable you to develop your own creativity and examine that of others. You may opt to start (or finish) your own novel, poem or play, or to produce critical analyses of works in these genres. You may study the history and varieties of the English language and/or ideas about language, meaning and literature. Or you may explore the cinematic works of a country, genre or director.
