Writing Major and Creative Writing Major

Coe is unusual in offering two different writing majors and minors, allowing students multiple avenues for intensive study of the craft of writing.

  • Creative Writing, a degree plan that focuses on poetry, fiction, or script writing.
  • Writing, a degree plan that focuses on nonfiction prose, including journalism, professional and technical writing, and creative nonfiction.

Either major will prepare you with writing skills necessary for a career in journalism, editing, management, teaching, advertising, law, and freelance writing in addition to any of the wide array of fields which require strong critical thinking and communication skills.
