Undergraduate Program

The Creative Writing Program serves a lively undergraduate program, leading to a BA in English with an emphasis in Creative Writing. We teach a broad array of courses in fiction, nonfiction and poetry, including workshops, courses in revision, courses with a reading emphasis and a course in which students work on The Oval, our undergraduate literary magazine. Upper-division classes are taught by our regular faculty and visiting writers, the same professors who lead the graduate program, and undergraduates are welcome at all the readings, craft lectures and panels that the MFA program presents. Recent recipients of the BA degree have gone on to MFA programs at Iowa, Michigan, Florida, Washington and many other of the most reputable graduate programs in the country. Come join us!

Information about undergraduate scholarships, most notably the Candice K. Memorial Scholarship, Fishtrap, James Crumley Memorial Scholarship, The Opus and The Welch Scholarship, is available at Scholarships and Awards. More information on the degree is available on the English Department website.
