The creative and critical balance in hybrid modules


We offer several modules that can count as English Literature or Creative Writing. Students are offered the opportunity to submit either a creative piece or a critical essay for the final assignment which is usually the one that carries the most marks.

A potential problem

A snag a can be that English Literature students might select the creative outcome – and they have every right to do so – but they haven’t built up the same creative wring skills as have Creative Writing students.
