Undergraduate Creative Writing Minor

The creative writing minor for undergraduate students is administered by the Department of English.

The creative writing minor emphasizes the craft of writing, revision, and the creation of imaginative literary work through a sequence of multi-­genre courses. It requires close reading and discussion of published works, including completion of a pre-­20th-­century literature class, which provides a foundation in non-­contemporary fiction, nonfiction, and/or poetry.

To declare the creative writing minor, call English undergraduate advising (612-625-4592) to schedule an advising appointment.
