Degree Options

The Professional Writing Program offers full and part-time degree programs leading to an Honours Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree, which requires the successful completion of 120 credits. The program also offers a Specialized Honours 120-credit degree, which combines a study of English and Professional Writing.

Combined Degree Programs
Professional Writing can be combined as an Honours Double Major, or as the major in an Honours Major/Minor program, with most other disciplines in the Faculty of Liberal Arts and Professional Studies. You can also combine Professional Writing as an Honours Double Major or Major/Minor program with the Faculties of Environmental Studies, Fine Arts, Health, Science or Engineering.

Professional Writing students are encouraged to consider a second Major or a Minor in order to gain knowledge and background in a particular subject that will serve as a valuable complement to the understanding and skills gained through the Professional Writing Program.
