The Creative Writing Program offers students the opportunity to focus their study on the creation of literary texts through workshops in poetry, fiction and creative nonfiction. Immersed in the study of the literary tradition, students will practice craft and technique, develop voice and style, and gain exposure to a wide and diverse set of voices in contemporary literature as inspiration for their own work. The Program partners with the Stadler Center for Poetry to provide a diverse reading series and a vibrant slate of writers in residence, as well as internships on campus, thereby enhancing connections with living writers and enabling students to apply their skills beyond the classroom.


The Course Catalog provides detailed coursework requirements for both the major and minor in creative writing. View course descriptions.
