Visit the Creative Writing Program
Study how writing leads to a creative career and life.
The creative writing minor or concentration will allow you to explore the connections between creative writing, digital media, criticism, and scholarship. Our creative writing program offers literature courses, small writing workshops, and practical industry training seminars to prepare you for advanced study or careers in writing, media, and publishing. You’ll benefit from the resources provided by an accomplished faculty and the opportunities afforded by New York City itself, a worldwide center for literary publishing and the arts.
The study of creative writing offers both a practice and a foundational way of thinking that fosters empathy, resilience, and joyful innovation. You will study a diversity of forms, genres, and voices, and discover the ways in which language is a primary tool to realize not only a creative career but also a creative life.
Of course, you’ll learn more than creative writing here. You’ll also study philosophy, theology, history, mathematics, languages, and the arts through Fordham’s common core curriculum, the centerpiece of our liberal arts education. We want you to excel in your field—and as a human being.
