The English Department’s Creative Writing minor provides undergraduate students of any major with opportunities to develop as writers within a variety of creative contexts. The courses in the program enable students to develop both writing craft and technical proficiency. In addition to taking foundations courses that introduce students to the discipline, students are encouraged to take a core sequence, which will enable them to move from writing individual pieces to developing longer book-length compositions. By the program’s end, students will have developed a strong representative body of work.
