You’re a writer, and you want to write. As a Creative Writing major, you’ll write from day one, immediately learning about the process of creating your own content—while actually creating it.
Your introduction to the program starts with two courses: Foundations in Creative Writing and Beginning Workshop. Here, you’ll lay the groundwork for successful writing by experimenting with a number of different writing styles and forms. And it’s not just about writing. Through effective reading in literature courses, you’ll become a more effective writer.
You’ll also take elective classes in the visual and performing arts, new media and other areas. These elective courses throughout Columbia will open your eyes to the many ways in which writing allows you to participate in contemporary conversations on social and cultural change.
