Creative Writing, BFA
Anything is possible in the worlds that you create.
The BFA in Creative Writing is designed for students who have a inner passion for writing and want to take their skills to the next level. If writing is your one true love, then this is the place for you to flourish..
Through the course of the Creative Writing program, students learn to develop their own styles, to communicate original ideas clearly, and to present their understanding of themselves and the larger world through cogent, expressive writing in a variety of forms. They study established traditions as well as emerging content and methods. Students are encouraged to be curious, adaptive, and flexible to develop lifelong habits to generate good work and remain current in a changing market.
The capstone is the culmination of the BFA degree where students create a body of written work, drawing on readings, research, and experience with close faculty mentorship and critique with the class cohort. The result is a polished portfolio piece that serves as a springboard to the next step, be it the professional world or graduate school.
