Students may count courses from a major, concentration and/or minor towards a second major, concentration and/or minor; however, students must complete a minimum of 50 percent of unique courses toward the second major, concentration and/or minor, unless otherwise stated in the Undergraduate Academic Calendar.

The minor in Writing is for those who want to explore the theory and practice of writing in a more intensive way than is possible in other courses. From histories, practices, and theories of rhetoric and composition to creative writing and the principles of editing and researching in a digital age, the topics covered in the minor in Writing examine various aspects of the academic discipline of writing studies.

To obtain a minor in Writing, students must fulfill the following requirements:
❏ WRIT 1120
❏ 2.5 additional units at the 2000 level or above from WRIT, ENGL/WRIT, LIBR 2100, COMM/WRIT 3512, and either ENGL 4407/WOMS 4407/GWGS 6607 or ENGL 4408. Students may not take both ENGL 4407/WOMS 4407/GWGS 6607 and ENGL 4408 toward the minor in Writing.
