Degree Certificate in Creative Writing

Majoring in English with an Emphasis in Creative Writing

Grossmont College is one of the few community colleges in California to offer an Associate Degree with an English major that fulfills lower division requirements at most four-year colleges and universities and thus provides a broad-based foundation for transfer. 

Any student who completes 24 units in the courses for this major, and chooses to complete 6 additional units from our Creative Writing Program's upper-level workshop courses (see below), qualifies for a Certificate of Achievement in English–Creative Writing. An official request must be filed with the Admissions and Records Office prior to the deadline as stated in the Academic CalendarNote: All courses must be completed with a letter grade of “C” or higher.
