The Creative Writing Program offers two formal courses of study for University of Oregon undergraduates:
Students receiving a minor in Creative Writing will successfully complete courses in which they will study matters of craft by reading and writing creative works, and develop critical thinking and interpretive skills. In addition, students will hone their ability to articulate complex ideas with subtlety and clarity, and gain instruction in the mechanics of writing.
Join like-minded peers in a learning community with the shared mission of deepening your intellectual lives and developing yourselves as literary artists over an entire year. Nowhere else on campus do undergraduate students receive the sustained and close attention to their creative writing that the Kidd Tutorial offers.
Students should consult their major advisors about integrating creative writing courses into their programs.
