The writing minor allows students to complement their area of major study with systematic experience in writing.

These degree requirements are subject to periodic revision by the academic department, and the College reserves the right to make exceptions and substitutions as judged necessary in individual cases. Therefore, the College strongly urges students to consult regularly with their major advisor and CLAS advisor to confirm the best plans of study before finalizing them.

Program Delivery

  • This is an on-campus and online program.

Declaring This Minor

  • Please see your CLAS advisor.
