Strong writers are needed in every workplace, which is why English Writing majors are in such high demand. Clear, effective written communication can inform, educate, persuade, instruct and sell. No matter which industry you plan to pursue, you can be assured that you can, as a writer, find a place to thrive.
CU Denver offers a fully online Bachelor of Arts in English Writing, Rhetoric, and Technology which can be completed in four years of full-time study. Whether you are starting your undergraduate degree or finishing one that you started at another institution, this is a program designed to introduce you to the broad scope and diverse applications of professional writing. Our courses provide a rigorous application of writing research and theory, which provides a foundation for countless career opportunities.
This generalized writing degree includes courses in professional writing, linguistics, multimedia composition, magazine writing, digital publication, creative writing, and academic writing.
The online BA in English Writing, Rhetoric, and Technology provides a thorough exploration of several areas of professional and academic writing as well as opportunities to specialize in one area through the use of electives in journalism, communication, creative writing, and digital production.
Students come to our program with many different career goals, and we work with you to identify how your strengths as a writer can be transferred into your desired career. You can enroll in our courses full time or part-time, regardless of where you live. Transferring credits from other accredited institutions is intentionally straightforward, as many of our students started their degrees elsewhere and finish their undergraduate degree with us.
When you take our online courses, you are taking classes with the same academic rigor and excellent instruction as any of the students on campus. In fact, you will often be in class with CU Denver students who have opted for a hybrid (part online and part on-campus) degree. That means that a BA in English Writing, Rhetoric, and Technology using CU Online’s digital classroom has the same value as our on-campus degree, but offers much more flexibility!
