Creative Writing: Enriching the Community and the Student Experience
Dean Kandi Turley Ames talks to Professor of English, Bethany Schultz Hurst and student Jessa Briggs about the value of the creative writing program and transferability of skills it imparts to students
The creative writing major or minor works best when paired with other studies that help students prepare for the job market. Kandi and Bethany discuss how creative writing enriches the community and imparts transferable critical and analytical skills.
Jessa Briggs, a senior majoring in English Creative Writing, Global Studies and Languages, and History shares her experience of how these three disciplines tie into each other, her experience as an honors student, studying abroad, and how she will use her college experience to pursue a career.
