The Post-baccalaureate Certificate in Creative Writing is a post-baccalaureate program designed to give students who already hold a B.A. or a B.S. the opportunity to enroll in courses to earn a graduate certiﬁcate. The certiﬁcate will aid those already enrolled in graduate programs who wish to have more writing in the genres of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. The certificate will also aid students who wish to prepare for futures in the writing community as publishing writers or as members of terminal degree programs.
This certiﬁcate program requires 15 hours of credit. Students may transfer up to 3 hours of credit from another program to apply to the Post-baccalaureate Certificate in Creative Writing. Admission to the certiﬁcate program requires a formal application through the Ofﬁce of Graduate Admissions.
