Writing Courses

With more than 30 writing courses each semester, Gallatin students have the opportunity to engage in diverse genres and writing practices.

First-Year Writing and Research Seminars use writing to explore a particular theme while helping students to develop their critical writing skills. Recent examples include “Aesthetics on Trial,” “The Surreal Thing,” and “Science Fiction: Frankenstein and Revisions.”

After taking the foundation courses, Gallatin students may choose from a rich variety of Advanced Writing Courses including fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, comedy-writing, and documentary-writing, as well inter-genre, theme-based writing courses.
