If you want to write on the side instead of making it a career, why not take join writers’ workshops instead? I think writing classes will only cramp your creative flow because of the academic pressure (imagine your teachers requiring you to write this many stories in one semester). If you really want to get serious about not being serious in writing, write your first draft. And don’t forget to read the works of great writers (I learned writing short stories this way). But if you really want to take up writing classes, simply ask for information from the Humanities division.
