In college, as I became more politically engaged, my interest began to gravitate more towards political science. The interest in serving and understanding people has never changed, yet I realized I could make a greater difference doing something for which I have a deeper passion, political science. Pursuing dual degrees in both Psychology and Political Science, I was provided an opportunity to complete a thesis in Psychology with Dr. Sheryl Carol a Professor in Social Psychology at the University of Texas (UT) This fall I will complete an additional thesis as a McNair Scholar with Dr. Ken Chambers, Associate Professor in Latin American studies in the UT Political Science Department.
Welcome to the Professional Creative Writing Program! We are excited to offer courses based on the conviction that good creative writing is rooted in two important activities: (1) deep reading in both the tradition and in the contemporary scene, and (2) the sharing of honest, insightful responses to the work of fellow students in a supportive workshop atmosphere. Our faculty of published writers who are also experienced instructors work to ensure that all our graduates have the tools they need to succeed at writing well and positioning themselves to publish in the genres closest to their heart.
