Professional Writing

The professional writing minor emphasizes skills and professional knowledge for students who are pursuing majors in other academic areas. This interdisciplinary minor would be appropriate for students who have a strong interest in writing but wish to graduate with a major in another field and for students who may wish to apply their major area of study to publication in non-academic settings such as newspapers, web sites, and magazines.


Scholarships are available in some areas, based on the applicant’s talent and ability, academic achievement, and need. Award amounts vary at the discretion of the faculty. Learn more »
