Our approach to learning and teaching is reflective, experiential, and engaging, led by experienced faculty who have mastered their professions.

Just a handful of the broad possibilities: journalist, fiction writer, creative non-fiction writer, technical writer, social media coordinator, public relations and marketing. A bachelor’s degree also helps prepare you for a graduate degree in the creative arts, such as AUSB’s MFA in Writing & Contemporary Media.
