Department of English
|Text Only Version||
The Writing minor complements a student’s major with coursework that allows students to exercise their imaginations through disciplined work in craft of writing. The goal is for students to develop and refine their individual skills, informed by a broad aesthetic and cultural background. The sequence aims to serve the novice writer as well as the more experienced student, with options for focusing on creative writing (fiction and poetry) as well as composition and rhetoric. The minor will consist of an 18-credit sequence (see "Requirements" below).
For English majors, 9 of the 18 credits must be earned in addition to the 42 needed to fulfill the English major requirement. Thus, an English major with a Writing minor will be required to complete 51 total credits in English beyond the LAC.
Courses to be counted must receive a grade of 2.0 or higher. Approval of a course of study for the minor program by the department chairperson is required.
