A degree in English is the study into how the world is represented and interpreted through the literary gaze. Through acts of reading, writing, analysing and critiquing, we encourage students to take a more critical and creative look at how we use the English language to communicate our ideas.
Our unique English and Creative Writing degree will allow you to deepen your intellectual knowledge of literature and further enhance your understanding and mastery of the English language.
While we place critical importance on written and analytical abilities, we also provide a supportive and encouraging environment to help nurture your oration abilities, providing you with the best possible grounding from which to share your ideas with the world. These skills are highly valued by a range of employers, which also contribute to students’ abilities in presenting information, forming cohesive arguments, cultural awareness and research skills.
Our students are the number one priority, which is why they benefit from the wealth of experience and expertise on this engaging topic. Our teaching staff is comprised of award-winning scholars and writers who strive to meet every student’s individual learning needs.
Actively researching in three core areas of literature, our tutors are continually channelling their knowledge and discoveries of poetry, prose and drama into the curriculum for students. We also offer intensive one-to-one feedback sessions from published writers and professionals who understand the intricacies of producing and working with literature.
University of Bolton students studying English and Creative Writing are offered the chance to push their work beyond the printed word and make use of our strong links with Octagon Theatre Bolton, where they receive both workshop and behind-the-scenes access and experiences. We also provide publishing experience, encouraging students to submit work to our in-house literary magazine, The Bolton Review.
