WHEN SHOULD I APPLY TO BECOME A CREATIVE WRITING MAJOR?

Our deadlines for admission are July 15, October 15 and April 15th. During the 2013-2014 academic year, students interested in the majoring or minoring in Creative Writing should make an appointment to see one of our Creative Writing Advisors listed above.

Transfer students who have already taken college-level creative writing classes may be admitted during their junior year on a case-by-case basis. Students who are uncertain about applying to the major should consider enrolling in ENG 209, especially if they've never done any creative writing before. Please note: ENG 209 no longer counts towards the major, through it does count as a writing credit.

 

HOW CAN I APPLY TO START A MAJOR OR MINOR IN CREATIVE WRITING?

  • Step One: Make an appointment to see a Creative Writing Advisor
  • Step Two: Go to your College to declare the Major or Minor
  • Step Three: Welcome, you are now a Major or Minor in Creative Writing!

Non-majors and creative writing minors interested in taking creative writing at UM should enroll in ENG 209. Minors will be admitted to 219 after completing 209.
