Syracuse University Adds Creative Writing to its English Department

If you’re considering Creative Writing as a major, you can now add Syracuse University to your list of schools which offer that opportunity

As of Fall 2011, The English department of the College of Arts and Sciences at Syracuse University has added two new tracks:  Creative Writing and Film and Screen Studies.

According to the student newspaper, The Daily Orange, these two new majors have been two years in the works.

“With recent faculty hires and the introduction of new courses, we thought it was the right time to establish specific emphases for students who want to concentrate their studies in the major in one of these two areas,” said Roger Hallas, associate professor and director of undergraduate studies of SU’s English department.

Students who major in Creative Writing, will study with the distinguished faculty from the MFA program – which was ranked 5th in the nation by Poets & Writers Magazine.
