Creative Writing Program

The creative writing major requires 33 hours. Students will study literary technique, style, form, genre, and the Anglo-American literary tradition while developing as poets, writers of fiction, creative nonfiction, and performance-based work.

Students who can write clearly and think creatively typically find jobs in a wide range of occupations, many of them located well beyond what is traditionally considered the career path of English or creative writing. Some of the most common jobs are editing/publishing, grant and proposal writing, feature film and television writer and digital copywriter just to name a few.

Program Objectives

Students will:

  1. Develop greater familiarity with literature in the Anglophone world.
  2. Develop creative and critical writing skills, including familiarity with different genres of creative writing and their modes of public performance.
  3. Learn to articulate goals as writers, and how to assess progress toward accomplishing them.
  4. Become involved in a community of writers and learn about writing as a profession
