In the tumultuous world of publishing in the early 21st century - when Amazon.com is selling more eBooks than traditional books, when magazines are adapting for the Web and when websites are gathering large and loyal followings - writers need to adapt. Rather than specializing, they need to master diverse skills that enable them to meet professional demands.
The SCAD writing curriculum is rooted in nonfiction and encourages students to pursue their passions while giving them exposure to a broad range of genres. Writing students take classes in creative nonfiction, fiction, new media, business and professional writing and literary journalism and are not required to focus on one kind of writing.
SCAD students explore the creative and career potentials of a multitude of genres. The writing department embraces creative writing, journalism and professional writing - creating alumni who are prepared to succeed in writing careers of the future.
