Why Choose the Creative Writing Minor?
With its dual emphasis on writing and reading creative works, the Creative Writing Minor encourages students to improve communicative and language skills while developing creative and critical texts; allows students to develop analytical skills and problem-solving skills; fosters an appreciation for language as both an expressive and a communicative medium; and encourages students to develop a deeper understanding of human nature, contemporary society, and the role of the individual in today's world.
This Creative Writing minor is open to any student admitted to Ferris State University and pursuing a baccalaureate degree. The minor is designed to complement any Ferris major program. A maximum of 1/3 of the credits, but no more than 7 credits, in a minor may overlap with the student's major. Students may apply 6 credit hours of overlap between minors.
An academic minor may only be awarded upon completion of a baccalaureate degree at Ferris State University. This minor requires a minimum of 18 credits with a minimum 2.0 grade average in these courses. At least 50 percent of the credits of the minor must be Ferris State University credits.
