What makes a text a good or captivating text? How do you recognize repetitions, inconsistencies, faulty logic and other problems in texts? And what does it take to guide a text from writer to reader?

These and other questions are encountered in the unique one-year programme which focuses on all aspects of writing, editing and publishing. You will improve your skills in writing and editing English texts. These skills include audience-centred writing and correcting written English. The programme is meant for graduates with a near-native command of the English language.

As a student of this programme, you will become aware of the different conventions, genres, and styles and how they appeal to various audiences. Also, you will learn to work authoritatively in the fields of writing, publishing and editing.

You will complete the programme with a placement period and a Master's thesis.
