Our Professional Writing, Film, Media, New Media, Journalism, Creative Studies, Drama, Professional Writing Masters degrees at the Bangor University offer you a blend of taught modules and personal supervision, allowing you to both pursue your own area of interest and draw upon the wide-ranging expertise of members of staff, all within a structured framework. The MAs also allow you to pursue a blend of theoretical/critical and creative-practice work.
A distinct feature of our approach is the way in which students from the various disciplines are encouraged to interact with, and learn from each other. For example, students from screenwriting, theatre and media practice courses often work together to produce practical pieces of work. Our course structure is extremely flexible, and allows students to choose modules from outside their specialised disciplines.
