Aims of the course Creative Writing Maior
These are the goals and messages that have been developed by the Creative Writing Department to help the student better understanding the goals of the program. Educating them in the esthetic creeds and literature of different epochs and civilizations in order to develop their own sensitivities. Teaching pupils how to be a writer and how to be critical in reading - to know the crafts, goals and esthetic decisions of other authors in order to create the pupils' own works.
Giving pupils the chance to write frequently and comprehensively, led by educators, assisted by schoolmates, based on literacy and learning, to enable an education in music. In order to evaluate the achievement of these goals, in their 400-step writing workshops (ENGL 401, 404 or 409) they are asked to think about how far they had the chance to achieve these goals and to what degree they felt they had been attained.
These considerations will be made in the shape of short notes at the end of the Intermediate Workshops. The current evaluation of the subject by the students enables the department to better understanding the strength and weakness of the subject and to consider a review of the demands if necessary.

Demonstrating an appreciation of the physical structures, as well as the drama structures, in the categories they have been studying.
Demonstrating the capacity to guide the work from the creation of an concept to the design through the phases of review.
