Creative Writing Major
Demanding. Inspiring. Valuable. Three words — among many others — that can describe the Creative Writing major at Providence College. Here, you’ll get a graduate-level experience at the undergraduate level.
You’ll learn from accomplished and distinguished authors and poets. You’ll learn about accomplished and distinguished authors and poets. And, it’s our goal to have you grow into an accomplished and distinguished author or poet — or lawyer or business person or graduate student.
An important feature of the major is how much writing freedom you have. You’ll tackle short fiction, verse and prose poetry. And, because of this focus on doing, you’ll have the opportunity to graduate from the program with a fully-formed portfolio — which can be the basis of a book or a boost to your résumé.
Interested in literature, poetry, or journalism? Then, our Writing minor is for you. The dynamic, 18-credit minor complements nearly every major — from the arts and sciences to business and humanities disciplines—by focusing on sharpening written communication and reading skills.
