Writing and communication skills are essential in the university, the workplace and beyond. Studies have shown that most advanced-level positions, in whatever discipline, involve complex communication skills and a range of writing activities. A minor in Writing demonstrates to prospective employers that you have mastered the complex writing and communication skills they seek.
Students who complete a minor in Writing will be trained in a variety of writing genres, including professional writing, academic writing, and, as an option only, creative writing.
The minor in Writing can be taken in conjunction with any major, including English.
