Students seeking personal enrichment through writing, as well as those seeking skill and versatility in professional arenas, are well served through the minor in writing. In addition to an emphasis on expressive and creative writing, the selection of courses
for the writing minor offers training and practice in writing skills and discourse forms found in public, professional, and academic contexts. Students minoring in writing may choose one of two concentrations: Creative Writing or Professional Writing.
tudents seeking a minor in writing with a concentration in professional writing take six (6) courses: three (3) core courses and three (3) electives. One elective may be ENG or ENGW. In addition, students must submit a writing portfolio to the department in the semester of graduation. Students in both the English major and Writing minor may count only two courses toward both programs. ENGW 140 and 280 (formerly ENG 300) may not be used as an elective in the Writing minor.
