Graduate Certificate in Creative Writing
Basic Certificate Information
The Graduate Certificate in Creative Writing adds interdisciplinary breadth to a student's course of study while increasing the depth and coherence of a student's work in creative writing. Given the growing interest in creative writing in non-traditional disciplines of medicine, sociology, and psychology as well as in liberal arts, many students find this formal recognition of their work in Creative Writing to be a valuable credential in both academic and non-academic job markets. This certificate demands an active engagement in graduate-level creative writing classes. Students who are pursuing the Graduate Certificate also receive first consideration for graduate workshop registration.
Admission Requirements and Prerequisites
Certificate Requirements: The Creative Writing Certificate is a 12-semester-credit-hour concentration available to degree-seeking students who have been admitted to any UTSA graduate program. Students who already have a graduate degree may also be considered for admission to the Creative Writing certificate program as special graduate students.
