The Professional Writing Program in the Faculty of Liberal Arts and Professional Studies at York University

offers students a unique opportunity to study the many forms of written expression that inform and shape our

culture while simultaneously acquiring practical expertise in the profession of writing, an expertise highly sought

after by employers.

The program core is designed to offer a firm grounding in the history, theory and practice of writing and to prepare

students for the four experiential capstone courses that complete the program: digital writing, institutional/business writing,

periodical writing/publishing and book publishing.  At the beginning of the third year students will choose two of the

four areas to specialize in.

English and Professional Writing Majors will also select from a variety of English Department

courses  at each year level.
