We have made many changes to English Program in the last year—including the development of our English Studies and Advanced English studies majors, incorporating creative writing more fully into our degrees, and strengthening the regional/rural elements of our English Language Arts program. With the current nationwide teacher shortage in English, we are eager to recruit more future teachers into our ranks! And with so many opportunities in creative writing at CSC, we would love to meet with you and help you FIND YOUR STORY!
