English, Creative Writing Emphasis, B.A.

Students should plan their course of study, in consultation with their faculty advisor, as soon as they have decided upon the major.

ENGL 120  or ENGL 220  (or an equivalent) is a prerequisite to all literature courses with a number of 300 or above, unless otherwise noted.

Note: INTD 100 - College Writing Seminar  is not a departmental course. Neither it nor a course which met the freshman writing requirement at another institution may be counted toward the English major or minor.


A minimum of 36 credits, at least 24 of which are at the 300 level or above

All majors must take ENGL 220  and ENGL 221 . It is required that they be taken sequentially; it is recommended, but not required, that they be taken before enrolling in upper division literature courses.

Creative Writing Workshops

Three creative writing workshops, including at least one at the advanced level, and covering at least two genres: fiction, poetry, screenwriting, playwriting, and/or literary translation. An appropriate internship or independent study can be substituted for one of these courses. Journalism does not count as one of the two genres.
