Bachelor of Arts in Writing

New York State's only comprehensive B.A. in writing—and one of the most unique undergraduate writing programs in the country.

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 over 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 invite our majors, therefore, to connect to their world and to build a writing-centered community based on integrity and responsibility.
