Why Choose the Creative Writing Certificate?
With its dual emphasis on writing and reading creative works, a Creative Writing certificate encourages students to improve communicative and language skills while developing creative and critical faculties. Producing, as well as reading and responding to creative texts, allows students to develop analytical skills and problem-solving skills; fosters an appreciation for language as both an expressive and a communicative medium; and encourages students to develop a deeper understanding of human nature, contemporary society, and the role of the individual in today's world.
This Creative Writing certificate is open to any student admitted to Ferris State University. The certificate is designed to complement any Ferris major program, or to provide additional post-baccalaureate skills and training.
Completion of this certificate requires a minimum of 9 credits and a minimum GPA of 2.0 or higher in these courses. At least 50% of the credits for the certificate must be Ferris State University credits.
