Bachelor of Arts 

The 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 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.
