Creative Writing Minor

Undergraduate Minor in Creative Writing

The Creative Writing minor will allow students of all majors other than English to gain guided instruction in the various genres of creative writing. English majors may already take all of the courses offered within their Creative Writing emphasis.

The minor will provide students with a working knowledge of creative literary production and significant practice in creative output for multiple genres, including fiction, poetry, and nonfiction. Your creativity and insight will be stretched by examining genres you may not have written before.
