B.A. The B.A. in English with a Creative Writing “depth of study” offers students the opportunity to practice a literary art form (fiction, poetry, and/or creative nonfiction) with the guidance of published writers. Students work to develop technical skills specific to each genre and enter into aesthetic conversations with the literary community. In addition to the core requirements of the major, Creative Writing specialists are expected to take 9 credits of workshop (usually in one genre) to fulfill their “depth of study” requirement.
