Why literature with writing emphasis?
This major is designed to help students develop skills that are essential to a liberal arts education and to the global marketplace: to read perceptively, to write clearly and creatively, and to think analytically. The Literature with Writing Emphasis major incorporates many of the features of the Literature major while giving students the further opportunity to explore a variety of writing forms. Students in this program balance the study of literature with the study and practice of creative writing and professional communication. This major provides a solid foundation for careers in publishing, professional writing, journalism, business, and public relations.
