Students in the Creative Writing Major at University of Arizona take four creative writing workshops and specialize in one of three genres: fiction, non-fiction, or poetry. Creative Writing majors also take core classes in English literature and literary analysis, a craft course, and elective courses in a range of topics in the research specialties of our professors.
Creative Writing majors are also prepared for careers after graduation through access to a large and growing internship program, a Professional and Technical Writing certificate program, special career development events, a study abroad program in London, and an application-required competitive English Honors program.
Recent UA Creative Writing majors have put their degree to use in a wide variety of careers, including screenwriting, editing, publishing, technical writing, video game design, marketing, journalism, teaching, business, and professional writing.
