The four-year creative nonfiction degree focuses on developing knowledge of genres, practical application, and publishing work, while building platforms, networks, and learning the skills every artist-entrepreneur needs to build their business and brand. You will learn not only the craft of writing, but also learn to master tools and techniques to build a career as a writer.
Start your first year with a foundation in all forms of creative writing. The second year introduces you to the history and analysis of nonfiction essays (travel, nature, lyrical). Moving into the third year, you will focus on biography and memoir. And finally, in the fourth year, you will write and refine a memoir, biography, or short essay compilation and begin querying agents.
