Honors in Creative Writing

Literary Arts concentrators who wish to complete their concentration with Honors in Creative Writing must include two 1000-level workshops or independent studies among their courses and must, in addition, complete a thesis.  The thesis is a substantial body of work that reflects the student’s achievement during his/her years in the Program:  a collection of stories or poems, a novel, a play or screenplay, or an extended electronic/mixed media project.  Students may complete a thesis by taking either LR 1510 (an independent study) or by taking LR 1410 (the Honors workshop).

*Students wishing to complete Honors in Cross-Disciplinary writing must take either two special topics workshops, one special topics plus one genre workshop, or one workshop in each of two different genres.
