The Creative Writing Major must attend five writing courses (15-20 credits). An award or a free degree can be considered as a class. A minimum of two work shops must be held in the same genres (fiction, literature, dramaturgy, screenplay, creative non-fiction); encouragement is given to the student to keep studying in the same genres as the intro, but this is not a prerequisite.
6 English language classes at 300 levels (18-24 credits): Two or more classes focusing mainly on poesy. Minimum two classes with a focus on Prosa. Two or more 19 th cent. classes. If you write your own play in the shape of poesy, it can be credited to your poem needs.
Writing a play in the shape of fiction can be counted towards the requirements for it. The counselor of each of the majors will be discreet, as many classes combine poetic, fiction and dramatic. Consultants can also replace a 200-cycle English course with a 300-cycle English course. remark: most creative writing classes (except first semester seminars) meet the post-school writing requirements.
Where the course number contains the character "W", it shall be in written form. STUDENT OXFORD: The ENGCW 270W Presentation to Creative Writing or ENGCW 271W Presentation to Poetry Writing from the University of Ohio are counted for the Creative Writing course. The FILM 378 screenplay course is NOT part of the Creative Writing programme.
