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.

Specific Degree Requirements: For a complete list of degree requirements please see the Graduate Catalog.

Transcripts: Official transcripts from all institutions attended. All international transcripts must be recorded in English or officially translated to English.

Evaluation of Foreign Credentials: All applicants including non-U.S. citizens (International), U.S. citizens (Domestic), or permanent residents who have earned university-level credit from foreign institutions are required to submit an evaluation from an approved Foreign Credential Agency of transcripts from all foreign institutions attended. If official transcripts are used in the foreign credential evaluation, the official transcript requirement will be considered met. However, if unofficial documents are used in the foreign credential evaluation, final official transcripts must be sent to UTSA.

  • An approved evaluation requires a detailed course-by-course evaluation. Summaries will not be accepted.
  • The Foreign Credentials Service of America (FCSA) is a private corporation that provides evaluations of foreign school credentials. The application is available at: Application for Credentials Evaluation.

International Applicants:

  • IELTS: Minimum score of 6.5.
  • TOEFL: Minimum scores of 79 or 60 for Internet or paper versions, respectively.

Additional Requirements: A degree seeking applicant must meet international graduate student admission requirements.
