MA Wild Writing, Literature and the Environment

Format: Campus

Program Description:

Our MA Wild Writing: Literature and the Environment offers a unique combination of science and humanities, focusing on writing about the environment. Its concerns are global, though our core modules focus these concerns through a study of the writing and environment of the local region, and through an introduction to twenty-first-century writing about nature. You can join our MA Wild Writing: Literature and the Environment with or without specialist backgrounds in literary studies or biological sciences, as one distinctive feature is our combination of literary and scientific analysis, although you can vary the balance of these two elements. We include field trips in the local area and a creative writing route is also available by choosing our creative writing modules and the creative writing form of assessment for your core course and/or dissertation.
