The Minor in Writing is designed for students interested in a focus on writing of all types and genres. Students select from a menu of courses in writing, rhetoric, and linguistics.
To graduate with a Minor in Writing, students must achieve a grade-point average of at least 2.0 in the 18-hour program described below, but no credit will be given for courses in which the grade is below C-. No course may fulfill more than one requirement. No more than two courses in Creative Writing may be counted toward the Minor in Writing. One writing-intensive (WI) course in a discipline other than English may be counted toward the Minor in Writing.
