English courses

Develop your critical, analytical and writing skills on our research-driven undergraduate English and creative writing courses.

We take a wide-ranging, multi-disciplinary approach, combining traditional modules with elective modules covering a range of philosophical, social, political, cultural and historical topics. We also support you to publish your own poetry, scripts or prose.

On all our courses you'll be taught by published researchers and established writers, and develop transferable skills through work-based projects and optional extended placements. We also offer masters-level English and creative writing courses, as well as PhD study within the Humanities Research Centre.

Sheffield Hallam University is ranked 4th amongst UK providers for Creative Writing in the Guardian University Guide 2023 league table.
