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.
