College of Letters and Science Creative Writing Minor


The Creative Writing minor encourages creativity in writing and thinking. Students enjoy the opportunity for self-expression in these classes, but their skills also lead to job opportunities after graduation. Employers seek out individuals with creative perspectives, and what you learn in the Creative Writing courses—the ability to write, revise, study and workshop stories and poems as well as engage in small group activities designed to build your creative voice—will help you in whatever major you choose to pursue. Careers our majors have landed in involve teaching, professional writing, journalism, copyediting, and continuing study in graduate school.

The minor is administered by the Department of English. It consists of 24 credits beyond the General Education Composition requirement.
