Welcome to the School of Writing, Literature, and Film

Our School is the product of a forward-looking vision and mission. In scholarship, teaching and learning, outreach and public engagement, we recognize the importance of deep reading, textual analysis, creative expression, applied and persuasive writing, and research skills.  We prepare students in textual disciplines for challenging careers and professions in a globally interconnected, information-rich, and humanly complex world.

On the OSU Corvallis campus, we offer a major and minor in English, a minor in Writing, a minor in Film, a minor in Applied Journalism, the MA in English (with concentrations in literature and culture, rhetoric, writing, and culture, or film and visual studies) and a high-residency, yearlong, fully funded MFA in Creative Writing (fiction, poetry, non-fiction) A low-residency MFA Program in creative writing is offered through the OSU Cascades Campus in Bend.

 

Look for these highlights on our website:

  • Our MFA Creative Writing portal, designed with input from MFA students.
  • Redesigned MA Program in English with areas of emphasis in literature and culture, rhetoric/writing and culture, and film and visual studies, preparing students for twenty-first century careers.
  • High-impact learning for undergraduates, such as study abroad programs, teaching opportunities, and internships.
  • Our brand new minor in Applied Journalism.
  • A film studies and screenwriting portal, with term-by-term course listings and film viewing events.
