ACC and Adams State College team up to offer students a "seamless" AA to BA degree in Creative Writing.
ACC students who earn the new Associate of Arts degree with the Creative Writing Emphasis now have the opportunity to seamlessly earn the Adams State College's Bachelor of Arts degree in Creative Writing.
" Given the robust associate degree at ACC, only an additional 7 courses--21 credit hours-- are required to complete the English/Creative Writing Major at ASC," according to Carol Guerrero-Murphy, Department Head for English, Theatre, Communication, and Foreign Languages at Adams State College. Transfer ACC students can then choose to complete an entire second major (for example, in Mass Communication, Business, History) in their junior and senior years, or to complete minors such as English/Liberal Arts, Secondary English Licensure, or Theatre. Students will complete a total of 120 hours to graduate with a B.A.; 42 hours will be at the upper-division level.
Adams State College is located in Alamosa, Colorado near the Great Sand Dunes National Park. Students who opt to continue their studies in creative writing will study with poet Dr. Carol Guerrero-Murphy who earned a Ph.D in literature and creative writing at the University of Denver and is the author of Table Walking at Nighthawk,and American Book Award winning poet/novelist Aaron Abeyta, author of Rise, Do Not Be Afraid, his first novel, and two collections of poetry, as orion falls and colcha.
