B.A. in English Literature - Creative writing Agnes Scott College

Course info


The English department believes that the study and practice of creative writing elevates the mind, opens new avenues to the understanding of literature and language, enlarges our capacity to understand and communicate, and integrates liberal learning. Our creative writing curriculum has introductory courses, advanced workshops, and independent studies in poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and in conjunction with the Departments of Theatre and Dance, dramatic writing and screenwriting. Because good readers make good writers, the English Literature-Creative Writing major includes a strong foundation in literature; students choose from courses in British, Irish, American and postcolonial literatures; film; and the history and structure of the language.

The English literature-creative writing major requires a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 14 courses. (ENG-110 does not count toward the major.).

The program of study must include 280, 481, at least two 200-level literature courses, and at least two 300-level literature courses. Two literature courses (either 200-level or 300-level) must focus primarily on materials before 1800 (designated pre-1800), and two literature courses (either 200-level or 300-level) must focus on materials after 1800 (designated post-1800). The creative-writing component of the major requires a minimum of four creative-writing courses, including at least two at the 300-level and courses in at least two genres.

Creative writing courses combine the writing and revising of original works with critical reading of published model texts. All courses conduct frequent workshops in which students learn to productively critique writing their own and others. Many creative writing courses culminate in a public reading in which students perform the best of their writing for the campus community. The literature component of the creative writing major exposes students to a variety of ways of reading, understanding, and writing about literature, and the requirements for the major ensure that each student will have a grounding in literary history, as well as many opportunities to choose courses that reflect and develop her particular interests. All English majors take a foundation course, Perspectives on Literature (ENG 280), usually taken by the sophomore year, and a capstone course taken during their senior year. In the capstone course for creative writers, Senior Research Seminar in Creative Writing (ENG 481), students produce a substantial original work: examples include a poetry chapbook, a collection of essays or stories, a short novel, a play or screenplay, or a work that combines or transcends genres. Prospective English literature-creative writing majors should enroll in 200 level (introductory) creative writing courses as early as their first year and should take Perspectives on Literature by the end of their sophomore year.
