Starting Fall 2020 students who are interested in creative writing will now be able to declare creative writing as a minor.
The creative writing minor is composed of five core classes that focus on fiction writing, poetry, creative non-fiction, a creative writing portfolio and contemporary literature. Along with these core classes, students are asked to choose from one of three different elective courses. Students can choose from a creative writing internship, the Philosophy of Self course, where students will write a creative non-fiction piece about their spiritual and intellectual journey, or students may choose to take a second class in contemporary literature.
“We are so excited to be able to offer this minor to encourage students who want to pursue writing as art, as a career path and for personal fulfillment,” said Carolyn Dekker, Assistant Professor of English. “This highlights our strong course offerings in creative writing, and we hope it will also help encourage students to find the writing community on this campus.”
With this minor, the Soumi College of Arts and Sciences hopes that students will learn the technical features of literature and grow in their personal work.
