Additional Notes

For undergraduate courses, the Creative Writing Program no longer keeps waiting lists in the office. If a section is full, we recommend that you attend class on the first day and speak to the instructor. Only individual instructors will be able to provide permission numbers for overrides into undergraduate sections.

8000-level seminars fulfill the seminar component of program requirements.

Taken under the ENGW designator, a 5130 Topics course can fulfill either a literature/language requirement or a workshop requirement, depending on how the instructor designs the course.

Topics (ENGW 5130) and Reading as Writers (ENGW 5310) courses are typically cross-listed as ENGL 5090 "Readings in Special Subjects." Students may take either course to fulfill the "ENGL" literature and language requirement, but they must be enrolled under the ENGL designator to fulfill that requirement. (Either course may count toward the general "literature and language" requirements when taken under the ENGW designator.) 

Reading as Writers (ENGW 5310) does not satisfy the workshop requirement.
