About the MSt

Oxford University’s Master of Studies in Creative Writing is a two-year, part-time master’s degree course offering a unique combination of high contact hours, genre specialization, and critical and creative breadth. The emphasis on the course is very much on widening students’ sense of what is possible in their own creative output, and on cross-genre exploration in their writerly practice as well as in their critical investigations. In Year One particularly, students are encouraged to experiment as widely as possible beyond the limits of what they have hitherto felt their writing might be aiming to do, while in Year Two they work on material and genre-specialisation of their own choosing.
