Bachelor of Fine Arts in Creative Writing Education
Tech creative writing students produce two copies of Nebo, Tech's award winning literary journal each year.
The B.F.A. in Creative Writing Education is an excellent choice for students who want to teach English in high school, but love to write poetry or fiction. The degree gives these students the opportunity to take advantage of Tech's outstanding creative writing faculty to work on their own writing skills while they are preparing for a rewarding career in teaching.
