English and World Literature Major: Creative Writing Track


Requirements for the Major


The English and World Literature: Creative Writing Track at Pitzer

We believe that student work has meaningful literary and intellectual value, and we foster a supportive community of writers among our students. Through writing exercises, workshops, and intensive reading, students begin to take creative risks in their own writing. The aim of the writer is not to make a precise replica of experience, not to degrade the world in such a way, nor its ever-changing nature, but to build a door. If we are lucky, our readers walk through that door, arriving at a room we could never have predicted alone.

Requirements for the Major in English and World Literature

A major in English and World Literature requires the satisfactory completion of ten (10) courses, which may include independent study courses and a senior thesis/project. Six (6) courses should be completed prior to the senior year. Majors are also encouraged to attain at least reading knowledge of a language other than English (two years of college-level course). Courses may be taken in any sequence, but it is preferable that ENGL 001 PZ  is taken early in the student’s career.
