Bachelor of Arts with Writing Emphasis

The University of Washington English Department offers undergraduate students as many as 36 courses per academic year in fiction and poetry, from beginning to advanced. Many of these courses are also offered during Summer Quarter.

Undergraduate students may choose to major in English with a Writing Emphasis. In addition to the literature courses required of all English majors, majors electing the writing emphasis take a minimum of 25 credits in creative and expository writing courses, with upper division work in at least two genres or forms. For more information on the BA in English, see the Undergraduate Programs page, or contact the Humanities Academic Services Center.

Undergraduate students also have the opportunity to work on the staff of Bricolage, the undergraduate literary magazine.
