As a writing major, you can add your own words to the ranks of the novels, stories, and poems you have always loved to read. Writers are able to integrate knowledge and share ideas in a way that is thoughtful and engaging. This unique way of looking at the world has the ability to shape someone’s understanding of the human experience—its joys, sorrows, struggles, and victories. As a writing student at Huntington University, you will develop your writing style and voice and combine creative expression with critical thinking.
With small class sizes and plenty of writing workshops, you will receive peer feedback and personalized assessments and coaching from your professors. This will also give you opportunities to help others with their writing. The major prepares you for writing careers with classes in poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and history and structure of the English language. The English and modern language department also collaborates with the communication department and HU’s film program in order to give you experience in screenwriting and newswriting, as well.
