The program in Creative Expression and Society features two components: workshop-style courses allow students to develop skills in creative expression and communication, particularly creative writing, while other courses encourage students to analyze the relationship between creative arts and society.
Students choose from among courses focused on fiction, non-fiction, poetry and/or creative expression through music and visual media. Students in this program will also select from courses that explore topics including ethics and accountability; the arts and public opinion; reception and interpretation; and censorship and criticism. Students in the Creative Expression and Society Minor will develop their creative skills while studying the interaction between social conditions and creative expression.
