BFA Program

Spring Term 2019 Course Descriptions

The BFA in Creative Writing at PSU provides students with the fundamental skills and experience to enter the creative field or graduate study as writers, editors, teachers, and contributors to American letters. We feature a comprehensive and intensive curriculum of classes and workshops in craft and technique, exposure to the work of established writers, and opportunities for students to work closely with peers and published writers as they develop and hone their creative work and critical skills.

As part of a large and diverse program and university, students can choose from a wide array of department electives in creative writing, literature, publishing, composition, and technical writing -- and can further explore interdisciplinary connections through PSU’s College of the Arts, including courses in Architecture, Art, Art History, Film, Music, and Theatre.

Admission to the BFA is by application to the program and is highly selective. Please note that out-of-state freshman and transfer applicants in Western Undergraduate Exchange states applying early for fall admission can qualify for greatly reduced tuition
