Creative Writing (Graduate Certificate)

Creative writing fosters community, creative risk-taking, and development of voice. Bring these skills to your work and other studies.

What You’ll Learn

The 15-credit Graduate Certificate in Creative Writing allows writers of poetry, fiction and creative non-fiction the opportunity to practice and hone their craft without committing to a full master’s program.

Like a “minor” on the graduate level, it may be taken by students who are pursuing graduate studies in other areas, or by students who wish to explore their interest and aptitude for further work or study in creative writing.
