It is strongly recommended that students who are serious about
their writing balance creative writing courses with as many
literature courses as possible. Reading widely and critically is the
best way to learn to write well.
English majors may count up to five creative writing courses (defined as courses numbered English 0005-0016) towards the major's required ten courses. See "Major Concentration Requirements" and "Approved Courses" for general information about the English major.
English minors may count up to three creative writing courses (defined as courses numbered English 0005-0016) towards the minor's required six courses. See "Minor Concentration Requirements" for general information about the English minor.
