The Professional Writing minor is a pragmatic set of courses that is an effective complement to the English major as well as other fields of study where clear, concise, and precise writing is valued. Professional writing teaches students to write and produce documents for specific audiences for a particular purpose. The documents may be as short as professionally written emails and letters up to book-length publications.
The Professional Writing minor is of particular value for students interested in publishing and editing careers, producing content for digital media, careers that require grant writing experience, and other jobs in which writing with a clear purpose is paramount.
Consists of 24 credits beyond the General Education Composition requirement.
