Creative Writing Minor

A Creative Writing minor can add exciting balance to a major in the physical or the social sciences.  Or perhaps English majors in the Literary track might like to experience literature from the other side — writing it as opposed to critiquing it.  Many important poets and novelists hold full-time jobs in fields other than academics or professional writing, and so an economics major can also be a great poet. 

A minor in Creative Writing can be an important beginning to your future as a great poet or novelist; ready you to write film, book, or game reviews; or kick start a creative writing portfolio for application to MFA programs.
