Michael Wadkins, BFA Graduate May 2014

I would like to extend my sincerest gratitude to the UNCW Creative Writing Department for their profound generosity and support... You guys are family to me.
—Michael Wadkins, BFA 2014, UNCW College of Health & Human Services

BFA in Creative Writing

For undergraduate students, we offer a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Creative Writing, as well as minors in poetry writing and in creative nonfiction writing to students in other majors. Our BFA offers sought-after credentials in writing and publishing to undergraduates with a wide range of career interests. Our curriculum combines workshops in fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction writing with courses in literature, hybrid genres, and special topics. We also offer a Certificate in Publishing to BFA students, and make available classes in editing, book design, and other publishing topics through our Publishing Laboratory, and in screenwriting through the Department of Film Studies (though we do not offer the BFA degree in screenwriting).
