What goes with any major?
A Sweetland Minor in Writing
As hokey as that may sound the Sweetland Minor in Writing is designed for undergraduate students who are interested in developing their disciplinary and professional writing abilities while pursuing their majors. It gives you the freedom to write about what matters to you while helping you develop as a writer and thinker.
Students currently in the Minor program come from all over the university bringing a wealth of diverse interests to the classroom. You might find a screenwriter sitting between a scientist and a musician or Kinesiology, Business, and Communications majors giving each other feedback on their writing. Check out some of the writers' bios from our Gateway students.
With a Sweetland Minor in Writing you will earn a credential that certifies your writing expertise to prospective employers and graduate programs. You will also pick up new media skills designing and creating content for your electronic writing portfolios.
