Siena Heights offers a Bachelor of Arts degree major in Creative Writing as well as a Creative Writing minor.
While the focus is on the writing of poetry, fiction, drama, and screenwriting for film, video and television, the program also seeks to educate writers in other areas of literary studies. Courses in English, American, and World Literature provide the necessary background students need to develop as writers.
Also included are courses in Literary Criticism and editing a literary journal. The degree is rounded off by the senior tutorial which requires a creative writing project in the form of poetry, fiction, or drama manuscript.
