Creative Writing Transfer Pathway (AA)


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study/Pathways

Writing skills are used in all areas of work and education, and students who master these skills can achieve success in numerous areas of interest. Since writing majors are employable in so many fields that include high levels of critical thinking, the Creative Writing curriculum includes not only required basic courses but literature requirements as well. Writing majors also have additional course opportunities in the mass communications and arts areas, as well as the opportunity for electives in other areas of interest since all knowledge gained can enhance writing. This diverse background prepares students for university specialties and transfer to four-year institutions, entering into the workforce, and furthering overall writing skills to help meet personal goals. The course work students will experience in this program will enhance both creativity and critical thinking.
