A Masters degree in Modern Literature and Creative Writing is an excellent preparation for a wide range of careers. As well as deepening your knowledge in your chosen areas in the linguistics field, you will also develop transferable skills, such as research, analysis and presentation skills.
Completing an MA can be the first step in an academic career in Higher or Further Education, whilst also enhancing your career options outside the field of academia.
One popular career choice is teaching English, either in the UK, having completed a PGCE, or abroad, with a TEFL or TESOL qualification. Many of our students go on to careers as journalists on local, national and specialist newspapers and magazines. The fields of publishing, advertising, arts administration, PR, television, the film industry and other media-related jobs are also ideal destinations for English Studies graduates.
