Why Chose the Creative Writing Minor?

A Minor in Creative Writing enhances any professional program. In addtion to developing a student's writing, creative thinking, research, and literacy skills, a minor in creative writing provides the basis for imaginative and fulfilling avocations, as well as, potential for self-employment or professional development. No profession is without writers, and many of today's best selling authors are primarily employed in other occupations, including business, medicine, criminal justice, public administration and education.
