English Degrees

From Shakespeare to English language and writing media, studying English will help you develop your potential by further enhancing your skills of expression and critical writing and thinking. Many of our English and creative writing graduates can be found in writing-related areas such as editing, publishing and journalism.

Taught by a team of world-leading researchers, published writers and prize winning poets, English and creative writing at the University of South Wales will provide you with a friendly and supportive atmosphere that will allow you to flourish.

As an English university student, you’ll be taught by academics who are prize-winning poets, novelists and story writers.

There is a thriving research culture at the University, so you’ll be taught by expert staff, many of whose publications have been recognised as internationally excellent or world leading.

Our English degrees are highly flexible. There’s an astonishing variety of genres, texts and periods you can study within modules. This means you have the opportunity to design your own degree course, selecting options that reflect your particular areas of interest. And that’s in addition to learning how to teach English to speakers of other languages (TESOL).

You will have a chance to get your work published in DAPs, the anthology of creative writing edited by students. This provides a fantastic opportunity to learn about developing and designing a publication from start to finish. 

Graduates of our English degrees have an enviable record of establishing careers in editing, publishing, teaching, writing, advertising, public relations, the civil service, local government, arts administration and broadcasting. Many students also progress to postgraduate study at the University.
