B.A. in English - Writing


The ability to communicate well is a fundamental requirement for personal and professional success. The 120-credit Bachelor of Arts in English with a concentration in writing is an ideal degree for anyone who wishes to become a professional writer, or who aspires to a career where communication skills are applied. The writing concentration explores various forms of creative expression through course work in literature, creative writing and non-fiction writing. Students pursuing this concentration have the opportunity to take courses in "Creative Writing" (poetry, non-fiction, drama), "Advanced Writing" (business writing, expository) and "Rhetoric/English Language" (logic of conversation, history of the English language, persuasion). The B.A. in English offers students both a strong traditional liberal arts education and many opportunities to explore other disciplines
