A minor in creative writing requires six three- or four-credit courses, exclusive of ENGL 101, 105, and 201. In meeting the requirements of this minor, a student may not use more than nine credits that are also used to meet the requirements of any other major or minor. The courses must include:
- Creative writing workshops: three courses chosen from ENGL 203, 204, 205, 307, 308, and 309 and Theater 220, with at least one at the 300-level.
- Literature: two literature courses in English, including one chosen from courses numbered between 230 and 294 and one chosen from ENGL 299 or English courses numbers between 311 and 387.
- One additional course chosen from the above or from ENGL 403 or 453. Students majoring in a discipline without an emphasis in literature are strongly encouraged to choose an elective course from the Literature category (number 2 above). English majors wishing to complete a Creative Writing minor should elect a fourth workshop, a 403 in creative writing, or a creative honors thesis in English.
- Participation in a capstone public reading in winter or spring of the senior year.
