McDaniel to begin romance writing graduate program in the fall

McDaniel College will launch its online graduate program in romance writing this fall. Pamela Regis, an English professor at McDaniel and nationally recognized expert on romance novels, will coordinate the program.

The five-course online program is dedicated to writing story-driven fiction culminating with a proposal package for an original, novel-length romance. Each course is three credits and the cost per course is $1,290. It will be taught by experts in the field, including New York Times bestselling romance writer Jennifer Crusie, according to a McDaniel College news release.

The courses are scheduled consecutively in eight-week increments, making it possible to complete the program in about a year. Since it's designed for those who are new to writing or have some writing experience, each online course is asynchronous, so anyone with an Internet connection can work on the course materials at any time, according to the news release.

McDaniel College has been awarded two $100,000 grants from the Nora Roberts Foundation to help advance research and study of romance literature. The grants supported the creation of the online graduate program in romance writing and establishment of a popular literature minor, which includes the study of romance, and the Nora Roberts Center for American Romance.

Credits received from the romance writing program can be transferred into a master of liberal arts degree at McDaniel. For more information about the master of liberal arts degree, visit http://www.mcdaniel.edu.
