English/Creative Writing Double Major Portfolio

All creative writing/English double majors will compile a portfolio. This portfolio is designed to give students and creative writing/English faculty a cumulative vision of the quality of the students’ work over the course of their years in the major. As they progress through the creative writing/English program, students will continually update their portfolios by adding required elements. Students will receive a list of required elements from their major advisor when they declare.
