Creative writing courses are open to minors and non-minors. Students who declare a Creative Writing Minor receive first preference in enrolling in creative writing courses in the English department during pre-registration periods.
The Creative Writing minor requires five course (15 hours), including one 300-level literature course offered by the English department. The remaining four courses will consist of Creative Writing workshops offered by the English department (poetry, fiction, literary nonfiction, and the 100-level multi-genre course) or cross-listed with the minor (playwriting and screenwriting); at least two of these must be at the 300-level. While CRW 100 counts towards the minor for students who wish to take this course, it is not required. To enroll in a 300-level workshop, students must have taken a 200-level workshop.
English majors may earn a Creative Writing minor by taking four creative writing courses (at least two at the 300-level) exclusive of courses used to complete their major.
