The USC creative-writing program is ranked among the top 100 programs in the country, the school announced Monday.
The program is among 11 USC programs that earned a 100% mark for the second straight year.
The school also posted an 89% mark last year, and this year the program ranked among top 100 in several categories.
According to USC’s data, the program posted an annualized return of $10,822,944 for the 2017-18 academic year.
That’s up $2,734,838 from 2016-17.
The school has also made some big changes this year.
The total number of students graduating in the USC creative and creative writing majors has increased to 2,500 from 1,500.
Additionally, the number of courses in the creative writing major increased from 25 to 40.
This year’s graduation rate of 66.4% was up from 64.8% last year.
This year’s program also saw a significant increase in the number students taking creative writing courses.
The program saw a 4.7% increase from 1.8 million in 2016 to 2.3 million in 2017.
The number of Creative Writing majors is expected to rise as the number in creative writing grows.
In 2016, the first year the USC program was ranked among college creative writing schools, it had more than 7,000 students.
That number will likely increase significantly as the program becomes a full-fledged program this year, with an overall enrollment of around 3,000.
The creative writing departments are currently led by Associate Professor of Creative Studies, Emily Houser, and Associate Professor, Matthew McManus, who have both served as associate faculty.
The two professors also serve as program directors.
The director of the program is a former graduate of USC.
