The B.A. in English with a Concentration in Creative Writing prepares students to publish their work in all media: books, magazines and literary journals. Because the Brooklyn Campus is so close to many venues for performance and literary events, students are encouraged to experience the world of imaginative writing at first hand.
This degree prepares students for graduate work at the Master of Fine Arts level, as well as for programs in law, journalism and education. In addition, creative writing students are well prepared for a wide range of careers such as: acting broadcasting, communications, marketing, proofreading, public relations, publishing, screenwriting, teaching, Web design and writing.
