Exercise your creative muscle in classes on poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction writing with a Creative Writing minor.

Creative Writing Minor

The Cornerstones of Creative Writing

Students interested in pursuing writing on top of their chosen major can add a Creative Writing minor. Learn to channel your imagination into the art of language and connect with your audience to bring ideas to life. You will focus on refining your style and broadening your writing ability across multiple genres.

A minor in Creative Writing will also teach you technical skills such as writing on a deadline and critical thinking and analysis. Creative Writing courses focused on poetry, fiction, and various creative nonfiction writing styles will boost your marketability for careers in media, publishing, and business.

Students majoring in English with a Creative Writing concentration cannot add a Creative Writing minor.
