Hollins University to Offer a New Bachelor’s Degree Program in Creative Writing

Hollins University, a leading educational institution for women in Roanoke, Virginia, has announced that it will offer a new bachelor’s degree program in creative writing beginning next fall. The university has offered a co-educational master of fine arts degree in creative writing and a minor degree program for undergraduates.

Patricia Hammer, vice president for academic affairs at Hollins University, said that “the new creative writing major ensures that we will continue to successfully foster new generations of authors in growing their craft.”

The new major will feature allied study in dance, visual art, film, music, or theatre, and will immerse students in a diversity of writers, writing theories, and literary experiences on campus.

“The major will provide students ample opportunity for focused exploration through individual projects and classes in poetry, fiction, nonfiction, or cross-genre writing and literatures,” explains Cathryn Hankla, professor of English and creative writing. She adds that the major will be intertwined with the study of literature, “which the department views as essential.”
