The writing major is a pre-professional major, providing students with experience in many facets of writing, with an emphasis on informational and creative writing. Geneva′s program prepares students for opportunities in journalism, publishing, creative writing, professional writing for business/industry and even free-lance writing.

In partnership with the CCCU, Geneva students with strong interest in writing and journalism in particular, can participate in the summer Washington Journalism Center Program. This experience on Capitol Hill cultivates professional news skills and encourages students to think through the implications of being a Christian working in the news media in a city that is home to the powerful and the powerless. This summer program is a blend of classroom and field experience.

A student majoring in writing must complete 52 credit hours in major courses. The writing major is designed to develop general writing skills while still giving the student the option of emphasizing creative or informational writing. The writing major is not a journalism major.
