Writing

The Writing Minor or Concentration exposes students to a plethora of cross-disciplinary writing opportunities. Students will develop the skills necessary for writing in all realms: civic life, employment, graduate school, and beyond. They will increase their creativity and innovation in all writing undertakings. Students will gain experience in collaboration, problem solving, innovation, and new media literacy. This minor/concentration permits students to document formally their acquisition of these rhetorical skills
