Students seeking the Graduate Certificate in Creative Writing enroll in only four
courses in order to earn the certificate.
They choose to focus in one of the creative writing genres offered in the MAPW program—fiction,
poetry, film/TV, playwriting, or creative nonfiction—in which they will concentrate
and are allowed to enroll only in the two workshops that the Program offers in that
genre. They will first take the beginning course then the advanced one. For example,
students who concentrate in fiction writing will take the beginning fiction writing
course then the advanced fiction writing course.
Students are also required to take "Readings for Writers" (PRWR 6100) and "Careers
in the Literary Arts" (PRWR 6800).
Because none of the courses required for the Graduate Certificate in Creative Writing
is offered every semester, students must plan their course of study carefully.
