Overview

English (Creative Writing) majors of Colgate University may pursue an eleven-course sequence leading to a degree in English with an emphasis in creative writing.

Key facts:

The Department of English offers courses in two programs of study, one in literature written in the English language and the second in English with an emphasis in creative writing.

Students pursuing one of the majors in the department take courses in specified categories described in detail below. There is considerable choice from among the courses that fulfill these requirements, and students should discuss their programs with an adviser in planning a major. 

English courses also serve as electives for students in other programs. Normally 200-level courses are for first-year and sophomore students; 300-level courses, for sophomores, juniors, and seniors; and 400-level courses for juniors and seniors. 

There are a few specified prerequisites for individual courses. Non-majoring students considering 400-level English courses as electives, however, should consult catalogue descriptions and may wish to speak with instructors to determine their readiness for particular courses.
