Creative Writing Minor
The Creative Writing Program offers an interdisciplinary Minor in Creative Writing to students across the university. The goal of the program is to support students in their creative writing endeavors. The Creative Writing Program seeks to offer students the opportunity to augment their degree by taking courses that will awaken their imagination, develop their skills as creative writers and thinkers, and foster greater empathy towards the experiences of others.
The Creative Writing Program also seeks to create a "space of creativity" within the university. Through courses and workshops, students will interact with and learn from their peers as well as published novelists, poets, playwrights and screenwriters.
Interested freshmen may wish to take part in our Creative Writing Community.
