The Creative Writing program was easy to get into. At the end of my first semester, I declared my major through a simple form. Oftentimes, professors and advisers will help you in choosing a program right for you if you're unsure where to go. The program itself, however, requires a large amount of dedication, including involvement in the production and publication of the campus-published literary journal. The program is widely respected on and off campus.

My major at the moment is in Creative Writing here at Tusculum, and the program is extensive and to be respected. The decorated faculty personally encourage each Creative Writing student to hone their craft, and the community is known and envied across campus programs. Most students in the program are published - some many times - before getting their undergraduate degree, and often move on to receive fellowships at renowned universities for graduate school. In addition, Creative Writing students are required to spend four semesters compiling and editing the campus literary journal, the Tusculum Review, granting them an immeasurable amount of experience in the literary world. However, the program seems to - especially at first glance - supply a cookie-cutter success; the prominent faculty have found a niche and seek to conform the students in that border of success.

I'm debating on changing my Journalism minor to my major for practicality purposes, and that major requires an internship. Though I haven't had any personal experience thus far, not only have I discussed such matters with faculty members and have the fullest confidence in their ability to help me find an internship. Similarly, a friend of mine has a job/internship relevant to his triple Business major to help ease him through school, as found for him by his academic adviser. I plan to make good use of the caring and competent faculty at Tusculum to receive an internship to further my experience in my chosen field.

Given a chance to re-decide majors, I would choose the same two every time. I have had hard times with both of them, but at the same time I have grown to trust and respect my faculty over the years. I am going into my senior year and I can only say I love my program more now than I did when I started and it is all due to the effort the faculty put into me as an individual student.

Both of the programs I'm involved in are relatively easy to join, but require a great deal of effort to maintain.
The creative writing program at Tusculum is one of the largest on campus with an almost all students moving onto graduate school and gaining publications. The professors stay on their students and make everyone work for their grades. Some can be emotionally taxing, but every time a student receives their grade, there is no question as to whether or not they earned it.
Tusculum's history program is one of the best in the region. Its professors constantly work their students to become better historians and to use the right source materials. Every upper division class focuses on the use of primary sources and requires an extensive paper at the end.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
