Students will develop broadly as writers through in-class work and significant experiences outside the classroom—trips to hear writers read their work, conferences in which writers discuss the act of writing, and public opportunities for students to read and receive feedback on their own work. These experiences prepare students to enter the workforce or a graduate program.
Experiential Learning opportunities include:
- Attending and presenting at regional and national conferences
- Travelling to hear published writers speak
- Classroom speakers and guest lectures
- Independent research
- Research with faculty or student peers
- Internships and cooperative education assignments
