Our faculty provide instruction, guidance, and mentorship in the writing of poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction. No matter your area of interest, STAC will provide you with the tools to pursue the writing career of your dreams.

Earning a Bachelor's degree in Creative Writing  from St. Thomas Aquinas College prepares students for a variety of learning and working opportunities upon graduation. Many of our alumni have gone on to pursue an M.F.A. in Creative Writing after graduation, while others have secured prestigious positions at top New York City publishing houses.

Creative Writing Student Opportunities

  • Our Creative Writing students are offered many chances for experiential learning. Juniors and seniors have the opportunity to work on and contribute to Voyager, our completely student-run publication, as well as many regional literary journals in New York City and the Hudson Valley.
  • Students in the Creative Writing Program also get a front-row seat to readings by national prize-winning writers in our Writers @ Work series. Writers @ Work presents talks, readings, and lectures by a wide range of voices.  Even better, these writers often sit in on creative writing seminars on campus, offering feedback to students on their own work.

Programme Structure

  • Course offerings in Creative Writing cover a wide array of English and American literature (from the monsters and heroes of Old English epic to the experimental creations of contemporary American short fiction); a full range of forms and genres (including, prose, poetry, drama, film, and emerging media); and a variety of literary-critical methodologies. 
  • Moreover, while the Creative Writing faculty is committed to acquainting majors with the works of traditionally canonical authors and a robust sense of literary historical periodicity, they are equally devoted to familiarizing students with the works of historically under-represented groups and to emerging issues connected to the study of literature.
