English - Creative Writing

Do you dream of becoming a poet or novelist, an editor or publisher, a marketing specialist, or a communications officer? Maybe you like to coordinate literary festivals, design corporate websites, or teach others about literature or writing. These are some examples of where a creative writing concentration in the study of English can lead.

In the English major program you will learn about international authors and diverse literary periods and genres.
