Over the history of the English Department, the creative writing program has evolved from a few introductory course offerings to what is now a full program of introductory, intermediate, and advanced courses in fiction, nonfiction, and poetry.  Creative Writing is currently a competitive concentration within the major, but beginning with the Class of 2023 it will become its own separate pathway for completion of the major. Below are links to detailed descriptions of the various aspects of Creative Writing within the major.
