A quintet of award-winning authors at the University of Houston-Victoria, including new writer-in-residence Beverly Lowry, will be instructors for the university’s new creative writing degree.  Starting this fall, a creative writing degree will be offered in the UHV School of Arts & Sciences. Students in Victoria and online can pursue a Bachelor of Arts in Humanities – ­Creative Writing.

Courses will be taught by five award-winning authors: Lowry; Dagoberto Gilb, executive director of CentroVictoria at UHV; and English lecturers Diana López, Brian Carr and Rene Perez.

Creative writing students will have to satisfy core curriculum humanities requirements and take the classes “Introduction to Creative Writing” and “Grammar and Rhetoric.” They also have the option of taking classes in fiction writing, nonfiction writing, poetry writing or screenplays.

The degree is intended to prepare students for careers in writing, publishing and teaching, although the program could be a useful degree for a number of related professions such as marketing, journalism, publishing and arts administration.
