MA- English Major Creative Writing Concentration


Summary of the Changes:

The English Department does not offer sufficient Creative Writing courses to justify a concentration in Creative Writing at the graduate level. Our hiring priorities are not focused on staffing enough courses to justify a Creative Writing concentration at the graduate level. The presence of this concentration in the catalog no longer reflects our program. The Department of English graduate faculty and the department chair are in agreement that this track be terminated.
