In addition to the required five courses in poetry or fiction writing, students must take five courses in English Literature or English Language in a Global Context.

English M138 is a variable-genre course and DOES NOT apply towards the concentration.

•Enrollment in any creative writing course is by application only.

While some creative writing students attend graduate school to hone their skills and develop their art, others practice their craft in commercial industries like marketing or publishing.

Ultimately, creative writers learn many skills that employers find desirable.
