At Loyola, you will find a broad array of writing courses and thoroughly dedicated writing professors. Loyola's writing department offers a major and minor, or, students can pursue an interdisciplinary major, combining their writing major with another major such as biology, English, or political science.
The department also offers numerous extracurricular opportunities to develop your writing abilities. Our department sponsors two literary magazines: the Forum, for essays and art work, and the Garland for poetry, stories, and art work. These are student-run magazines that publish top-quality issues every year. We also have an internship coordinator to help you find great writing-related apprenticeships at local publications and organizations. Moreover, with support from the Center for the Humanities, the department sponsors the Modern Masters Reading Series, which brings nationally and internationally known writers to Loyola's campus.
Visit the Writing Department FAQs page for more information about the department and what writing students can accomplish by studying writing.
The Loyola University Maryland Writing Center, run by the department but open to all Loyola students, offers assistance to students who need help writing. The Writing Center also offers students an opportunity to begin learning how to teach writing as consultants.
