Since 1939, the year in which a Creative Arts Program was set, Princeton undergraduates have had the opportunity to pursue courses in Creative Writing under the guidance of practicing writers. The Creative Arts Program was from the outset notable for the distinction of its faculty, which has included writers such as John Berryman, William Meredith, Robert Fitzgerald, Sean O'Faolain, Richard Eberhart, Kingsley Amis and Philip Roth. Undergraduates work with practicing writers while pursuing a regular liberal arts course of study.
