Economics with Creative Writing BSc

Studying Creative Writing helps you to harness the full expressive potential and persuasive power of language. It provides you with the tools and the confidence to approach a wide range of literary forms – from short fiction to immersive journalism, poetry to scriptwriting for the stage, radio and screen – with aesthetic judgement and practical command.
