Undergraduate Curriculum

English Major with Creative Writing Option

The Undergraduate Program

Our undergraduate Creative Writing program is a studio-based program designed to help students publish their artistic work. It is not intended to prepare a student for a specific career; however, our creative writing graduates, while publishing artistic work, have found diversified careers in editing, publishing, grant writing, teaching, professional schools and many fields less directly related to their writing abilities. Courses in technical communications are complementary to these career interests.

Visit the College of Arts, Letters, and Sciences for more information about the Undergraduate program, or see the University Catalog for complete information and requirements.
Contact EWU's English Department for any questions about the undergraduate program.
