The Writing minor is designed for students who enjoy writing and who want to develop practical and analytical skills, combined with a sound theoretical understanding, in the area of creative and professional writing. Lectures and practical writing workshops give students a firm foundation in a range of writing genres, including fiction writing, scriptwriting, journalism and editing.
