Return to College of Letters, Arts & Sciences Return to: College of Letters, Arts & Sciences

The creative writing minor, as part of the English Department, is a rigorous immersion in the craft of literature and will assist those who wish to pursue careers in writing, editing, and publishing; those who wish to teach creative writing; those who wish to study literature from the vantage point of the writer; and those who wish to augment their academic study with an emphasis on creative writing. The minor sharpens students’ writing and editing skills; introduces them to various genres; and helps them to understand the nature, process, and publication of creative writing. Additionally, the creative writing minor provides opportunities for participants to hone analytic, presentational, cognitive, and creative skills related to reading, writing, analyzing, and presenting written texts.

General Requirements

The English Creative Writing minor requires a minimum of 21 credit hours of ENGL course work, 9 of which must be upper-division (3000+ level). English majors who have declared a Literature emphasis within the major may complete the minor with 18 credit hours in creative writing (no literature elective). All courses must be completed with a grade of C- or better.
