|Field of Study:||English Creative Writing
Spanish Language and Literature
|Description:||This single honours course is based on the same principles as single honours Spanish, but allows you to include a substantial proportion of study in Creative Writing. Spanish is the major subject which counts for two-thirds of your degree, and Creative Writing is the minor subject which counts for the remaining third.
The Spanish part of the course will give you advanced skills in the Spanish language, and a broad range of specialised and detailed insights into the culture, society and history that go with it. The Spanish course has language at the heart of it, with core modules developing the key oral, aural and written skills every year. These modules also foster cultural awareness, which you will need for your year abroad, and later on, for the world of work. For the Creative Writing part of the degree, you will learn to approach texts as both a reader and a writer, discovering links and synergies between these different perspectives. Through critical knowledge and practical experience, you will learn how to write in several genres, including the novel, the short story, travel writing, writing for performance, writing for young adults, screenwriting and poetry.
