Creative Writing Minor


Return to Programs of Study Return to: Programs of Study

The Creative Writing program is committed to developing creative written expression. Through writing-intensive seminars and workshops, Creative Writing minors: (1) develop their creative thinking and writing ability; (2) gain a greater sensitivity to language; (3) learn to offer and respond to constructive criticism; (4) learn to read literature in terms of craft and method; (5) create a portfolio of artistic work; and (6) become familiar with contemporary authors.

These skills will serve students whether they pursue graduate school or careers immediately after graduation. Depending upon the student’s major, the graduating Creative Writing minor’s options may include pursuing a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing or a Doctorate in English, either of which would qualify him or her for a career in college teaching. Other career directions may include education, writing literature, magazine writing, publishing, journalism, languages, communications, business, and technical and scientific writing.

The minor in Creative Writing consists of eighteen (18) hours. Students completing this minor are required to take:
