Creative Writing Minor
Declarations may begin in Fall 2014
Required: 15 credit hours
Students will take courses in 2 genres—poetry and fiction— and will be required to have an intro/intermediate sequence in one of those genres (eg., ENGL 213 and ENGL 303).
For the literature requirement, a student should take two 300-level classes; at least one of these classes should match their dominant genre.
These courses may be in other disciplines if crosslisted with English (e.g., World Lit). Up to six credits may count toward either the English major or another minor (but not both).
We require the assembly of a creative writing portfolio as the cornerstone of a student’s academic and post-academic career. It would include

ENGL 203 (Intro to Creative Writing) or 214 (Intro to Poetry Writing)
ENGL 304 (Intermediate Writing Workshop: Poetry)
