Description The Masters Project is the culmination of the Master of Arts in Literature and Creative Writing. Students will build up to being able to complete a long written project. For many students this will be a creative project (creative writing, or related media including music). This involves both the creative work (normally 11,000 words) along with an 'exegesis' that offers a critical overview of the ideas within it (4,000 words). Other students might choose to write a long critical essay in literary studies (15,000 words). There is no class work; rather, students work individually with a supervisor with significant expertise in the area in researching and writing their Project.
