COURSE OVERVIEW

  • Join a community passionate about the study of literature and the broad subject of English
  • Tailor a programme to your interests from a diverse range of writers and movements
  • Study the craft of writing while discovering how your work relates to the wider realms of literary and cultural context
  • Develop a critical understanding of your own writing and the writing of others through workshops
  • Attend the University of Winchester Writers' Festival and Winchester Reading Series — an opportunity to meet authors, publishers and agents
  • English Literature and Creative Writing at Winchester both achieved more than 90% overall satisfaction as rated by final-year undergraduate students in the 2017 National Student Survey

If you are a passionate reader who enjoys a broad spectrum of books, from Shakespeare to Postmodern fiction, and who also likes the idea of tapping into your own creative energy to craft it into poetry, plays or prose, then this is the perfect place to do it.

Our English Literature with Creative Writing degree offers an exploration of literary and creative writing in a rich combination of critical theory and practical workshops.

In English Literature you investigate how literature works through a close reading of modern and traditional literature, cultural and critical analysis, and writing in different genres. Our Creative Writing modules enable you to enhance your skills and evolve as an individual writer, while discovering how your own writing relates to the wider realms of literary and cultural context.

In Year 1, you develop the skills of understanding texts, critical analysis, research and writing through prose fiction, poetry and drama from various periods in history. You study core modules such as Introduction to English Studies, Scriptwriting, and Creative Non-Fiction, and a variety of optional modules including Transatlantic Narratives and Introduction to Poetry.

In Year 2, your focus becomes more specific with modules that look at elements of different genres such as writing for children, media writing, poetry, song and play, film and TV script. English Literature modules involve studying a group of texts representative of a period of history, a particular genre or a particular area of the world.

In the final year, you investigate the relationships between writing and the wider world, including publishing, producing, community audiences, writing and teaching. You also study a collection of writings, a particular theme, or critical theory which is closely related to the research fields of teaching staff, enabling you to engage with cutting-edge developments in the discipline.

In Creative Writing you develop a critical understanding of your own writing and the writing of others and your study is enhanced by an interactive workshop environment. This is also the chapter where your own narrative unfolds, in a Creative and Critical Extended Study.

Our graduates are equipped with advanced communication and critical skills greatly valued in a wide range of industries. In addition to becoming professional writers, graduates follow successful careers in publishing, advertising, marketing, journalism and teaching.

Careers

Graduates become professional writers or follow careers in publishing, advertising, marketing, journalism, teaching or other professions that require advanced communication skills.

Modules Credits

Studying English Literature 30
Introduction to Poetry 15

This module will be based on a specially compiled anthology incorporated into the module handbook, with a wide sampling of short texts ranging from Elizabethan sonnets to contemporary pieces.  There will be three main sections, each of three to four weeks. First, a concentration on close reading skills and an understanding of the uses of poetic form and language, based on material traditionally considered canonical. Secondly, the issue of the canon to be raised and questioned in an explicit way, exemplified by material that raises issues of class, gender, ‘high’ and ‘low’ culture, and postcolonial challenges. Thirdly, a focus on the contributions of context to understanding poetry operating through case studies of particular texts such as a sample of Cavalier verse or Romantic odes.

Literature in Context 15

This module is designed to introduce students to a range of literary texts and genres from the medieval period up to the eighteenth century, opening consideration of the advantages and disadvantages of understanding these texts in relation to their historical contexts. This will include consideration of the following: the changing practices of publication and composition of audience; the historical, political and cultural contexts; contemporary conceptualisations of genre, gender roles and sexual identity; treatment of issues of colonialism, national identity, ethnic difference and religious affiliation. Comparisons and contrasts in relation to historical change will be highlighted by tracing these topics across texts from different periods. Students will be encouraged to draw from the theoretical materials and methods learned on Studying English Literature alongside the complementary World Literature module to develop and build core interpretative skills. The use of texts that have already received considerable critical attention will enable students to engage with existing critical discussion.

Intertextuality 15

A literary text does not have meaning in and of itself, its meaning is always a product of its relation to other texts, both literary and non-literary. This module will examine a range of ways that texts have been analysed through their relationship with other texts. It will begin with the well-established concepts of source, genre, and allusion, examining specific texts and tracing these relationships. It will then look at theoretical expansions of the concept of intertextuality and consider these in relation to an extended study of a pair of related literary texts. Finally, it will consider adaptation of literary texts such as a fairy tale into other media such as film, television and the visual arts, considering how identification of a text as an adaptation of a preceding one impacts upon the interpretation of both.

World Literature 15

While Goethe introduced the phrase Weltliteratur in 1827 and called on us to hasten its approach, ‘World Literature’ remains, in David Damrosch’s view, an ‘elusive’ thing (‘Which literature? Whose world?’) Drawing on critical methodologies established in Studying English Literature, and complementing Literature in Context, this module will focus on how the study of ‘English’ as a discipline is affected by globalization and so-called ‘identity politics’. It will explore a range of texts both modern and foundational to illustrate a variety of concepts and critical issues, including: diaspora and migration, nationalism and multiculturalism, non-British English and reading in translation, and the effect of globalization on contemporary politics. It also invites students to consider the heterogeneity of the term ‘World Literature’ as both a hindrance and a benefit when tackling concepts like, for example, gender as a social and, increasingly, international construct.

Creative Non-fiction 15

This module is designed to enable students to work with non-fictional writings, and to learn how to express observations, experience and perceptions in the written form. The module is also intended to develop students’ creative and critical skills in tandem, understanding how to read and interpret writing as much as to produce it. As such students will be introduced to a varied range of approaches to non-fictional forms. Most work will be done in workshop groups, graduating to the production of independent pieces of non-fiction.

Poetry Now! (Poetry and Poetic Expression) 15

This module is designed to enable students to express their own creativity through various poetic forms. The module will introduce students to a varied range of poetry, and will require them to think about the relationship between the technical aspects of numerous forms and the content being expressed. The module will thus engage directly with some of the key issues in the study of the production of poetry. Practical work will be done in workshop groups, graduating to the production of independent poems in different forms, wherein choices of form are directly related to the accompanying poetic ‘message.’

Year 2 (Level 5)

Modules Credits

Critical Theory 15

Critical Theory has unarguably transformed the discipline of English Literature, but its significance in the 21st century has been increasingly subject to debate.  This module responds to proclamations of the ‘Death of Theory’ and the rush to declare us ‘post-Theory’ (post-gender, post-race, post-truth, etc.)  It examines the development of Critical Theory through the 20th century, as well as foundational texts from philosophy, to confront the historical and intellectual impact of ‘theory’ on the discipline. The module will explore works by difficult thinkers (from Barthes to Žižek), as well as the philosophers who influenced them (Plato, Heidegger, etc.) in order to experience theory first-hand, learning to tackle the more difficult critical material in the discipline in order to both assess its usefulness and application for different texts, contexts and periods. The focus on Critical Theory and philosophy will also enable students to engage with several of the UN sustainable development goals, including: 4 (Quality Education), 5 (Gender Equality), 10 (Reduced Inequalities) and those focused on ecological sustainability.

Preparation for Research and Professional Development 15

This is a preparatory module for two mandatory third year modules—the ‘Dissertation’ and the ‘Vocational Study’ module—and is taught in two parts.

(1) The ‘Preparation for Research’ part tackles various aspects of research, such as: discriminating between different methodologies to frame an individual project; making research creative and exciting; developing and planning an undergraduate dissertation; undertaking a preparatory literature review; writing research proposals.

(2) The ‘professional writing’ part of the module focuses on the transferable skills attained throughout the degree and prepares for life as an English Literature graduate. It looks at: project and time management; interviewing and presentation; and writing an effective C.V. The module will also give students a sense of academia as a profession and what it means to be a life-long learner (with reference to the UN Sustainability Goals).
