Creative Writing

Bachelor of Fine Arts
Degree Overview

In telling stories, we are able to explore the furthest reaches of experience – whether it’s our own, or someone else’s. And in this way, stories also carry the power to shape the world.

Full Sail’s bachelor of fine arts degree in Creative Writing allows you to wield that power in a way that is at once meaningful and savvy. You’ll learn how to tell a tale across different media platforms, incorporating visual elements and exploring a variety of genres. You’ll examine different modes of publication and distribution, and hone your craft through ongoing portfolio courses and peer-to-peer workshops.
