Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Hierarchy

Bachelor of Arts 

The Department of English now offers a choice of two majors, English and English/Creative Writing. The new Creative Writing major provides students interested in developing their skills as creative writers with introductory and advanced courses in poetry and fiction writing within the context of the English major. In addition to maintaining the literary rigors of the English major at Providence College, this major in English/Creative Writing provides a pedagogical focus on creative writing, as well as capstone courses that focus on the craft and discipline of poetry and fiction writing. Students participating in this major will complement their critical and reading skills with creative expression in Creative Writing courses taught by established poets and fiction writers. As a major within the Department of English, this new Creative Writing alternative stipulates clear standards for excellence. Please note that students may not double major in English and English/Creative Writing.
