Program Summary

The Creative Writing Minor offers introductory, intermediate, and advanced classes in the genres of Fiction, Poetry, and Creative Nonfiction. The Minor has been designed based on hallmarks for undergraduate courses suggested by the Association of Writing Programs which include a three-tiered curriculum in the genres of fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction; a robust literary focus; an undergraduate literary journal; and a reading series of visiting writers. Students also have the opportunity to design a focused “track” through their electives. The Creative Writing Minor prepares students for careers with writing and editing components. The Minor serves undergraduate students as a complement to a variety of disciplines, including Psychology, Criminal Justice, Communication, and the Sciences.
