Masters degrees in Prose offer advanced postgraduate training in the study or Prose: its form, its historical significance and the means to write it professionally.
Courses are typically taught MA or practise-based MFA degrees, with some offering the opportunity to undertake courses by research. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree, such as English Language, Literature or Creative Writing.
Depending on your interests and future career aims, your course can be utilised to reflect your aims. Masters in this field can either be theoretical in approach (exploring for example historical and critical concepts), or provide rigorous training in professional prose writing.
If you would prefer a theoretical approach, you may explore the significance of different genres such as gothic literature through different time periods. If practical is your preferred option, you might even look into specialising in a particular Prose from, such as fiction. More precisely, you could train in writing a specific type of fiction, such as children’s literature. Other options include screenwriting, playwriting and creative nonfiction.
Traditional careers include writing and publishing, communications and marketing, advertising, journalism, teaching, or undertake further research at PhD level.
