About

The graduate Writing Studies program at Saint Joseph's University combines a traditional literature-based master's degree with a creative writing program by offering a wide variety of courses and providing students with a highly flexible, unique academic experience. 

Overview

At Saint Joseph’s University, Writing Studies students at Saint Joseph's University engage in diverse styles of writing, including personal essays, short stories, poetry, press releases, screenplays, adolescent literature, reflections on teaching writing, and grant proposals.

Learning outcomes

In addition to taking classes in areas of writing and culture, rhetoric and composition, and professional writing, students have the opportunity to gain significant professional work experience through credit-bearing internships and courses that focus on portfolio development. Class sizes are small (fifteen students or less) and include dynamic workshops, allowing students to hone their writing skills. All faculty are practicing writers, giving students a sampling of professional experience. Additionally, Writing Studies students publish a student-authored literary magazine, The Avenue, featuring fiction, nonfiction and poetry.
