Major Program

Hamline’s creative writing major provides students a rigorous apprenticeship in the craft and process of writing; a rich curriculum in poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and hybrid forms; a strong background in the British and American literary traditions; and an understanding of the theoretical dimensions of reading and writing. Students will learn how to read closely as writers, to create their own original works while developing an effective writing practice, and to analyze and appreciate the elements that comprise works of literature. 

Course Requirements

To earn a bachelor of fine arts (BFA), students must complete 15 courses: 9 courses in creative writing and an English minor (6 courses).
