The Sweetland Minor in Writing

The Sweetland Minor in Writing gives you the tools not merely to “write for the professor,” but to produce compelling, accessible writing for a wide range of audiences and purposes. In addition, you will receive the foundational writing and critical thinking skills necessary for today’s competitive job market.

If you are an undergraduate student who is interested in developing further as a writer, both in and beyond their major, and who wants to join a vibrant community of writers, we invite you to apply! Our Minors come from departments all over campus, with diverse backgrounds, interests, and talents that unite to create a truly dynamic, project-based program. In both an introductory and advanced course, students receive the support and skills to create the kinds of work they would like to see in the world. We encourage experimentation and value failure as part of success. Minors may also choose to participate in our student-run journal and attend public events created with them in mind, including a writer interview series co-sponsored by WCBN Radio and Literati.
