A degree in writing can be obtained under a creative writing program. Creative writing is generally focused on teaching students the foundations of writing fiction. Fiction is best described as the written story of information or events that are not factual, but are, imaginary and theoretical, often invented by the author. Non-Fiction is more truth and fact based documentary style of writing, best suited for journalism, news reporting and educational publishing.

Creative Writing is a degree pursuit for individuals who want to create original works like books, plays, screenplays or poems. The course curriculums of colleges and universities often include classes in reading and critiquing published works and other students' rough drafts, and also writing personal pieces. Creative writing classes will develop on a students’ unique niche and improve individual and personal critiques and progression. Writing degree programs will also teach students to strengthen critical reading skills, when assessing short story and novel writing, poetry, screenwriting and script writing.

Writing systems have developed and changed based on the needs of the societies that shape the usage of the written language. The development of a written script is the study of how people have evolved over time. Historians distinguish between prehistory and history, with the discovery of a written text. History, as we know it, is defined by the advent of writing. The documentation of ancient times is the start of written history and most likely began with the political expansion in ancient cultures that required a means for formal information, maintaining financial obligations and keeping historical records.

Opportunities for graduates with a writing degree can range from newspapers, periodicals, book publishers to nonprofit organizations. The evolution of social media and online editorials has created a variety of market specialty niches that appeal to certain interest groups. Many different businesses and organizations are using newsletters and Internet websites to reach the non-traditional target markets and the advertising and public relations fields are also providing a demand for the new-and-improved writing professional.
