The Creative Writing minor focuses on writing courses: creative writing in fiction, drama, poetry, or nonfiction prose.
Courses taken for credit in minor programs may not be counted toward English major programs.
Why Consider a Creative Writing Minor?
Creative writing minors develop skills in creative thought and expression through study and practice of the craft of fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, and/or drama. Students participate in both the critical analysis and creative practice of writing, gaining widely-applicable experience in self-expression, artistic technique, and modes of communication.
