  In order to complete a crwr major you'd have to earn 18 crwr credits over the next 3 semester-but that wouldn't be impossible.

   The literature credits DON'T  have to be in English--they can be in any class in which you read literary texts.    In this case,   the two religion classes you took (Hebrew Bible,  New Testament)  appear to me to be primarily "text focused."   Right?    Which means you have actually 9/12 (or 10/12,   if the ENG 236 was 4CR)   of your lit requirement finished.

So you have 9/12 of the lit requirement; plus 7/25 of the crwr requirement
(120, 3 cr;  201, 4cr =7cr)

To finish a creative writing major,   you would need to take:  1 more 3 cr. lit class,  PLUS,  in CRWR:   3 upper division workshops;  1 4 cr independent project;   the senior colloquium;   and 1  section of Reading for Writing.    The only thing would be that 2 of the 3 workshops would have to be 4 credit workshops.

Your schedule might look something like this:

SPR. 05:
Fiction workshop                         4

Senior Colloquium                        1
Screenwriting                                4
1 literature class                            3

SPR 06
Poetry                                           3
Advanced Writing Project I           4
Reading for Writing                        2

(You could also switch this around,  and take Poetry/Advanced Project I  in fall,   and Playwriting in spring)

IN ANY CASE,   unless you have other issues involving 9-9-9 credits or something the major is definitely do-able for you.   I'm not sure why you were advised otherwise--maybe they didn't realize that you had the religion courses and the 120 class?     It WILL require one very writing-intensive (9 crwr hrs) semester next year,  but it sounds to me as if you are very committed and Angie says that you are a hard worker--so why not?     (you actually might probably be able to complete both CRWR and CS majors, if you wanted and juggled things right, though I'm not absolutely sure about that.)

If this seems workable to you,   please let me know ASAP and we could get you signed into the major this semester.

Yours truly,

Dan Chaon



At OCF prayer meetings, Kendall sometimes breaks into random mutterings of "Praise God. Praise Him. Hallelujah." I feel that way right now.

But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O men of little faith?
Therefore do not be anxious, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?'
For the Gentiles seek all these things; and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all.
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things shall be yours as well.

-Matthew 6:30-33
