If you love telling stories, envisioning new worlds and tinkering with syntax, you might be a creative writing major. This program teaches students the art and craft of poetry or fiction writing. It also emphasizes literature, because no one becomes a great writer without first consuming great literature. This degree can take you many places. Our creative writing alumni now work in writing, editing, teaching, public relations, law and media jobs. They also pursue Master of Fine Arts programs or doctoral studies.
Corner Pocket, our student literary magazine, was founded in 2014. Published once a year, the magazine features fiction and poetry. Students can earn valuable editorial and publishing experience participatin in its production and marketing. For more information, e-mail [email protected].
