Overview

Do you love words? Do you dream of telling stories or helping others tell theirs?

The Honours Bachelor of Creative and Professional Writing program will help you transform your passion for writing into a fulfilling career. You will learn to write clearly and convincingly across evolving genres, platforms and venues as you develop creative writing skills that stimulate your imagination and storytelling abilities.

You will practise your craft independently and collaboratively in various settings, from the traditional classroom experience to the creative writing workshop. In your final semester, benefit from one-on-one mentorship through our Capstone Manuscript course, where you develop a book-length project with the guidance of an established author.

Work Placement

You will gain practical, hands-on experience in the industry by completing a mandatory work placement which takes place in the summer semester between years 3 and 4. After completing a work placement preparation course, students will be supported in marketing themselves to prospective employers in order to find a work placement that aligns with their personal career goals.

Career opportunities

Students graduate as highly skilled, adaptable communicators with in-demand knowledge and the creative, responsive mindset that today’s shifting employment landscape requires. The work placement between years three and four provides a hands-on experience where students can further develop their industry connections, media literacy and written and verbal communication skills.

This program’s versatile curriculum includes information design (graphic, photo, video), accessible communication strategies, research best practices and project management skills, so graduates are primed to be well-rounded team members/colleagues.

The professional possibilities of the communications and writing fields are wide-ranging, and graduates are ideally positioned to embark on careers such as:

  • brand and marketing assistants/managers
  • communications assistants/specialists
  • freelance writers/journalists
  • content marketers/creators
  • editorial, publicity and public relations assistants
  • grant, proposal, report and ghost/speechwriters
  • published authors/storytellers
  • social/digital media assistants/strategists

Moreover, those graduates who wish to further study can progress to master’s level programs in creative writing, communications, media, humanities, English and related fields.
