If a minor is required in your degree program, at least 9 (lower and/or upper-division) hours of courses in the minor must be completed at the University.
Minor in Creative Writing
The minor in creative writing invites students from any major to explore literature and creative writing. While there are many ways to pursue creative writing, this minor provides those who want more sustained work in creative writing, a structure for that work, and a community of support. In addition, the creative writing minor fosters skills that employers have come to expect of students who study literature, such as the ability to comprehend complex material, analyze subtext, and communicate their ideas clearly.
To achieve a minor in creative writing, a student will need a minimum of 21 semester hours in English, exclusive of freshman English composition (EH 101 and EH 102). The other details and requirements are:
