Minors Snapshot - Creative Writing

Description:

The minor is a part of Cross Disciplinary Programs.

The cross disciplinary minor in creative writing is designed to give students an opportunity to develop their writing talents across a number of literary forms and communication contexts.

By developing course selections in poetry, fiction and creative non-fiction matched with those in stage and screenplay writing, students may tailor the program to suit a variety of artistic goals and professional objectives. The choice of at least one course from a group involving literary analysis and media criticism ensures perspective on current issues affecting readers and viewers, writers and their creative works.

The minimum requirement for a minor in creative writing is 18 hours. Two courses may be double-counted between the minor and the major. Students electing this minor may acquire more information from the creative writing adviser of the Department of English, the School of Media Arts and Design, or the School of Theatre and Dance.
