The course is designed to develop a range of valuable transferable skills, such as communication, self-management, teamwork, self-reflection and the ability to write for particular professional purposes. In addition to a possible career as a professional writer, other potential careers include work in film, television, radio, publishing, arts management, new media, journalism, advertising and marketing, business, public relations, business writing, teaching and therapeutic fields. You could also progress to postgraduate study or graduate teacher training.
In addition to building expertise in your own discipline, our courses will also help you to develop key transferable skills that you'll need for professional life or further study once you graduate.
As well as a range of careers and employability activities at Kingston, we also offer you the chance to apply and develop your skills in live contexts as an integral part of your course. Opportunities include:
In your final year, you'll get the opportunity to complete a major 'capstone' project where you can apply the knowledge and skills you have acquired to a range of real issues in different contexts. This is a great way to learn and is a valuable bridge to employment or further research at masters level.
If you decide that you would like to go on to postgraduate study after your undergraduate course, we offer a 10 per cent discount on our postgraduate course tuition fees to our alumni. Here are some courses that might interest you:
