The Creative Writing minor emphasizes the production of fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction and other forms of creative writing. It is designed as a complementary program of study, intended to add opportunities for creative activity onto students’ other academic interests. Students minoring in Creative Writing acquire a basic familiarity with literary history, study modern or contemporary literature and complete beginning, intermediate and advanced courses in the art and craft of creative writing.
When selecting courses, students should consult a faculty adviser in the Department of English, Comparative Literature and Linguistics. A “C” (2.0) or better is required in all courses applied to the minor.
