ENGL BC3252: Contemporary Media Theory - limited enrollment; attend the first day of class to receive instructor permission. Permission will NOT be granted in advance.
Courses that Require a Writing Sample to Apply
A writing sample is required to apply to creative writing courses. As space is limited in creative writing courses, not all students who apply are guaranteed admittance. If a student simply adds the course to myBarnard or SSOL without submitting a writing sample, it will NOT ensure their enrollment. Directions and the required cover sheet for writing samples are available in the English Department Office (417 Barnard Hall) as well as on the Forms section of this website. For the fall 2017 semester, writing samples with cover sheets should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 22, 2017. Admit lists will be posted on the Admit Lists section of this website as the department receives them from the professors. Students cannot add these courses to their schedules until after they are admitted. If an admit list is not posted for a class before its first meeting, attend it.
