The writing studies minor provides instruction in effective composition for both academic and professional settings. To this end, students will create written texts and may craft multimedia productions that incorporate image, sound, and hypertext. Students in the program take courses in three major areas: professional writing, composition and rhetoric, and new media literacy.
The writing studies minor complements course work in a variety of majors, and prepares students for careers that value clear and effective composition skills. Students with a minor in writing studies will also be well-equipped for graduate or professional study in fields such as business, law, education, and other writing-intensive disciplines.
