Writing Minors

A minor in writing explicitly engages students in the writing process and fosters their development as writers in academic and pre-professional contexts.

Writing courses train students in academic discourse and provide them with extensive opportunities for professional development within and across the disciplines. Emphasizing writing as a process, writing minor courses offer challenging curricula that develop students' abilities to research, synthesize, and innovate.
