The Bachelor of Arts degree in Creative Writing provides innovative instruction in the theory and practice of writing poetry and prose. Since writing and reading are inextricably linked, the Creative Writing major offers a strong foundation in literature as well as courses in the form and theory of poetry, fiction, nonfiction and dramatic writing.
Students will join an active community of writers, learning to write and revise creative pieces with an aim of publication, analyzing published model texts, and responding to the works of peers. Students will leave YHC prepared for graduate study in the discipline or work in a variety of fields that value strong writing, creativity and analytical skills. Students will also have gained the tools to continue writing and refining their creative work on their own outside of the classroom.
