Postgraduate Studies in Writing, Editing, and Publishing

Students who have completed a Bachelor’s degree in any discipline can enrol in UQ’s postgraduate coursework programs in Writing, Editing, and Publishing (WEP). The Graduate Certificate, Graduate Diploma, and Master of Arts in Writing, Editing, and Publishing include courses such as Academic and Corporate Editing Issues in Contemporary Publishing, Writing about the Arts, and Editing the Manuscript.

Graduates of the Diploma program who have achieved a high grade-point average and who have included a substantial research component in their coursework may also enrol in the Master of Philosophy program, in which they will engage in a sustained research and writing project based in their studies of academic or corporate writing, editing, and publishing.

Postgraduate Studies in Creative Writing

The Graduate Certificate in Arts (Creative Writing) offers an introduction to the field for students who have completed a bachelor’s degree in disciplines other than creative writing. Students take four courses from six that are regularly offered in poetry, short fiction, screenwriting, creative non-fiction, publishing, and researching fiction.

Research Higher Degrees in Creative Writing

The Master of Philosophy and the Doctor of Philosophy in Creative Writing offer students the opportunity to undertake a major work of fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, script, or screen writing. Students workshop their creative writing with advisors and other students and study the theories and practices of research, composition, and editing necessary for a vocation in writing. Additionally, students undertake a short critical essay about creative writing practice.
