Course content

Develop your own creative writing while engaging in intensive study of critical theory.

Our MA is driven by the sense that the critical and the creative are necessarily intertwined. It has grown out of longstanding teaching and research interests in:

  • creative writing
  • psychoanalysis
  • cultural materialism
  • eco-writing
  • postcolonialism
  • deconstruction
  • feminism
  • queer theory.

Our faculty includes professional authors and researchers of international standing. Your teaching is underpinned by the interdisciplinary research carried out in the Centre for Creative and Critical Thought.
