Students must maintain a minimum GPA of 2.300 overall in required and elective certificate courses in order to be awarded the certificate upon completion of their Bachelors Degree.
The certificate is awarded concurrently upon completion of all program requirements and completion of a bachelor’s degree at the University at Buffalo. It cannot be awarded as a standalone certificate program even after the student has earned a bachelor’s degree.
The Creative Writing Certificate aims to give students the skill sets they need to:
Follow a career path as writers.
Publish their work.
Successfully apply to graduate programs in creative writing (MA, MFA, PhD) in the genre of their choice by submitting material nurtured with the help of UB’s faculty.
