Course content

The Warwick Writing Programme is ‘the national centre of excellence’ according to the Times/ Sunday Times league table. Our MA in Writing attracts students from around the world. There are two pathways through the full-time Warwick MA in Writing:

  • Route A (TAUGHT): FIVE taught modules (compulsory Research for Writing plus FOUR other modules), in which a wide range of written work is produced.
  • Route B (LONG PROJECT): THREE taught modules (compulsory Research for Writing plus TWO other modules), 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 the student's prior experience of writing and of a proposal submitted before the course begins, as well as on the availability of a qualified supervisor or supervisors. Supervision of the Long Project begins in Term 2 and continues through Term 3.
