Regents University London

Liberal Arts Literature & Creative Writing BA Hons with Integrated Foundation

A liberal arts degree gives you the freedom to focus on the subjects that most interest you. You’ll concentrate on a major area of study while maintaining a breadth of learning spanning the arts, humanities and social sciences.  

Liberal Arts with Integrated Foundation incorporates an extra year of study to prepare you for your undergraduate degree. Once you have completed the foundation year, you will progress directly on to the three-year BA (Hons) Liberal Arts (Literature & Creative Writing) degree.  

The Literature & Creative Writing Major

The Literature & Creative Writing Major adopts a transnational approach to literary studies.     

You’ll examine a wide range of texts written by authors from different national and cultural backgrounds. Touching on various literary themes, you’ll learn how to build compelling arguments and relate texts to the historical, geographical, cultural and socio-political contexts that inspired them. Through this transnational lens, you’ll gain an understanding of how people, cultures and civilisations connect, clash and evolve across time and space.

The creative writing aspect of this major offers a practical element to your studies. You will take part in writing workshops, which will train you to tell authentic stories in a unique and personal way. Your literary knowledge will also inform your writing and help you to curate stories that emotionally engage with your readership.

This perfect balance between creative writing and literary studies will expose you to the affective power of language and teach you how to employ it as a vehicle for meaning in all aspects of your life.    

Elective modules will help you understand the breadth of this discipline and also give you a broad skillset.     

Options to learn a language and study abroad at one of our international partners will help expand your learning and global outlook.     

This interdisciplinary degree will open doors to fields as diverse as education, civil service, journalism, marketing, communications and advertising.

You will be required to combine your specialist modules with five elective modules in other subjects in Years 1 and 2, and three in Year 3.
