Students who are not majoring in English, and who have an interest in writing poetry or fiction, may enroll in the creative writing minor. The creative writing minor gives students the opportunity to complement their area of major study with experience writing and reading poetry or fiction.
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 their CLAS advisor to confirm the best plans of study before finalizing them.
This is an on-campus program.
