Format: Campus

Program Description:

The purpose of this program is to offer college graduates of all ages a series of courses designed to develop their writing skills to a professional level which meets their current or projected career or personal needs. This program is not primarily directed towards the teaching of writing. (For such programs please see the Education listings.) Rather it addresses the writer as writer-an option rarely found outside schools of journalism. Although this is an English Department program, students in all fields of interest are eligible, regardless of the type of baccalaureate degree they hold or the area of writing they wish to pursue.
