With the writing minor, students with a love of writing or an interest in honing their writing abilities to support their future career goals can take relevant coursework alongside their major(s).
The minor in writing consists of 21 credits in English. Fifteen of these credits must be in writing courses. Nine of the 21 credits must be in courses numbered 300 and above. The minor offers students the flexibility to dabble in literary studies and publishing coursework alongside their writing and enables students to experiment with a range of writing classes across our Professional Writing, Journalism, and Creative Writing concentrations. Writing minors are encouraged to take EN410 Senior Writing Portfolio as the capstone course for the minor.
