English with Creative Writing Emphasis vs. Creative Writing?
I am a senior in highschool and am looking at colleges and majors. I want to become an author but also get a smaller job in a publications agency or media marketing company to supplement income. I have to stay in state due to scholarships and there aren't any colleges that I can go to in state that offer a Bachelors in Creative Writing (only 3 and there is a reason of why I can't go to all 3). So, I am considering majoring in English with an emphasis on Creative Writing. Will there be too many major differences between these? I know that there will be differences, but I don't want them to be too major. I still want to focus on Creative Writing but I wasnt sure if it would or not. Also, would I be able to get a minor if I was already getting an emphasis in something? I might want to get a Media Marketing minor but wasn't sure if it was possible let alone feasable.6 replies
