Creative Writing Courses

note: These courses and course descriptions are all the same as in the English major, and most of them will continue to have the “ENG” designation as primarily literature courses that can also contribute to the Creative Writing major.  We’ve redesignated some courses as CW (these course designations should also be changed on the English major website) and created some cross-listed CW/ ENG course designations as well for courses that contribute significantly to both areas.  The courses from number 481-488 are standard courses/ numbers in each major, so there should be a CW version of these courses as well.  In the Creative Writing website the cross-listed courses should only be designed “CW,” and only “ENG” in the English site.

Here are the course designations and titles (nothing but the designation needs to be change):
