The  Minor in Writing
The Department of English offers an 18-credit writing minor that is an ideal complement to any major.  It is structured to enable students to tailor the minor to suit their own interests, emphasizing creative writing, expository writing, business and technical writing, or a combination of styles.  English majors may pursue a writing minor, but, except for History of the English Language and the 3 credits of advanced writing required by the major, no other credits earned toward the minor can count toward the major.  Prerequisites: ENGL 1201 and 1202.
