Bachelor of Arts in English/Writing Concentration

The writing concentration is designed for creative students who want to study writing in any form. Courses prepare students for future publication, professional writing, or graduate school.  Student writers study a variety of creative and practical genres while building portfolios of their own work. Course offerings include writing workshops in poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction and professional writing. These courses allow students to practice different genres, create hybrid texts, and produce a collection of work.  Each writing student's education will culminate in a capstone semester of individual study with one faculty member, who will tailor the curriculum to the student's specific writing interests.  During the capstone semester, the writing student will compile a portfolio of short pieces or a novella-length manuscript and write a critical preface.
