Creative Writing Minor

Total Units Required: 26

The Minor in Creative Writing provides the opportunity to study the tradition and craft of poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction in writing workshops and modern literature classes. In writing workshop classes, students critique and revise their creative work and study modern literature from a writer's perspective. The minor prepares students to write creative work independently and to understand their work in the context of contemporary literary practices.
