The Minor in Literature and Writing enables students of all majors to build a knowledge and skill base in both the study of literature and the practice of writing, choosing five courses (or a total of 15 credits) from a broad range that includes literature, writing, and theory/criticism courses. Writing majors who wish to enroll in the Literature and Writing Minor will simply substitute additional literature and/or criticism and theory courses for the writing component of the minor. The minor may be declared at any time; courses already taken can be counted.
