The major in Creative Writing prepares students to publish their writing, pursue writing and literature in graduate school and use creative writing and literature as tools to understand themselves and their world. Graduates often enter professions that require excellent communications skills.
Every Colby-Sawyer senior completes a Capstone project, a culmination of work in their fields of study that allows them to demonstrate a deep understanding of a body of knowledge and perspectives informed by that knowledge.
Creative Writing majors will prepare and present a creative thesis consisting of their best work (length requirements to vary depending upon genre). Additionally, students will write a craft and reflection essay, demonstrating special knowledge in an area of their choice. This essay will serve as the foundation for a seminar to be facilitated by the student.
Additional Curricula Opportunities
Students who go on to further studies in law, medicine, veterinary practice and physical therapy can combine any Colby-Sawyer major with a course of study that will prepare them for the next academic step.
