Welcome to the School of Writing, Literature, and Film!
Our School is the product of a forward-looking vision and mission. In scholarship, teaching and learning, outreach and public engagement, we recognize the importance of deep reading, textual analysis, creative expression, applied and persuasive writing, and research skills. We prepare students in textual disciplines for challenging careers and professions in a globally interconnected, information-rich, and humanly complex world.
On the OSU Corvallis campus, we offer a major and minor in English, a minor in Writing, a minor in Film, a minor in Applied Journalism, the MA in English (with concentrations in literature and culture; rhetoric, writing, and culture; or film and visual studies) and a high-residency, fully-funded MFA in Creative Writing (fiction, poetry, non-fiction). A low-residency MFA Program in creative writing is offered through the OSU Cascades Campus in Bend.
