Minor in Creative Writing

Program Requirements

Our Mission: 

The Creative Writing minor offers art and design students an opportunity to give voice and shape to their creativity through a variety of written expressive forms. The minor provides guidance and support to students in a structured environment to develop their writing, and an exciting way to explore their personal visions through workshops and lectures.

Program Learning Outcomes:

Students enrolled in the Creative Writing minor will: 

  • Identify and employ writing techniques and habits that allow critical thought and expression.
  • Develop an understanding of genre and explore writing in multiple forms.
  • Demonstrate the habits of revision, workshop, close reading, and submission for publication.
  • Recognize the political and social elements of a text and demonstrate multiple critical approaches.
  • Experiment with the relationship between text and image and identify intersections between writing and chosen major.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of meaning, justice, and community in literature and in personal writing practice.
