The minor is open to students from all majors. You can join during your sophomore year after meeting with your advisor.

Your final course will be the LLC 490 Creative Writing Senior Seminar, in which you'll complete significant original work. The Creative Writing Senior Seminar and all other Creative Writing courses can also be taken as electives. Total concentration credits: 12 (four classes).
