Blending theory and practice, our program seeks to foster clarity, invention, and expertise in various styles and genres. Students select from a diverse curriculum of more than 40 courses and may choose to concentrate in creative writing, nonfiction, feature writing, or professional writing.
Whatever the genre, good writing does justice to a subject, and every subject, no matter how private, is embedded within a social context. We are proud of the way in which our majors consistently build and renew a writing-centered community based on integrity and responsibility.
