Creative Writing Concentration
Students have the opportunity to pursue a creative writing concentration within the English major. The creative writing concentration is open only to English majors.
|ENGL 141||Introduction to Creative Writing: Poetry|
|or ENGL 142||Introduction to Creative Writing: Narrative|
|Select two of the following courses:|
|Intermediate Poetry Workshop|
|Intermediate Fiction Workshop|
|Intermediate Creative Nonfiction Workshop|
Majors who complete the three-course sequence will be certified as having completed the concentration on their transcripts. Note that the limit of counting two creative writing courses towards the English major means that creative writing concentrators will take a minimum of 12 courses in English rather than 11. Beyond the three required courses, the department offers creative writing electives such as screenwriting and science writing so that students can deepen their practice as writers. Students may also complete an English Honors thesis in creative writing.
