MRes - Master of Research
About This Course
This programme offers you the opportunity to conduct in-depth practice-based, empirical or critical research into the process and product of professional writing. You will work towards the production of a practice-based portfolio or independently researched piece of work which will explore the creative and critical styles, contexts and attitudes of professional writing. You will develop, sustain, consolidate and resolve a self-directed programme of work in professional writing over an extended period of time, supervised by specialist professional staff in the field.
Successful applicants for this programme will have an excellent ?rst degree in a relevant discipline or equivalent practical/industrial experience, and a demonstrated ability to work independently to bring a self-directed project to completion.
The MRes in Professional Writing will prepare students to meet the need – increasingly being identified within industry – for self-reflective practitioners with experience at project development in the creative industries. It will also give them the opportunity to demonstrate their ability to work independently on a long and complex project, providing a strong basis for those wishing to go on to further academic study and to academic careers.
We actively seek to put students in contact with relevant industry bodies and organises a variety of professional workshops and competitions, e.g. through the Enterprise by Design scheme.
Past graduates have secured positions in a variety of creative (and related) industries, including broadcasting and filmmaking, advertising/PR, games development and tourism.
