Creative Writing Minor

The minor in Creative Writing is ideal for students who want to use the narrative, lyrical, and research tools involved in literary work in order to enrich and enhance their primary field, whether that primary field is Psychology, Journalism, History, or any other subject in Arts & Science and beyond.

The Creative Writing minor consists of 15 credit hours of coursework. For Creative Writing courses, it must include at least 3 credit hours at the 1000 level (1500, 1510, 1520, 1530) in any genre, 3 credit hours at the 2000 level (2510, 2520, 2530) in any genre, and 3 credit hours at the 4000 level (4510, 4520, 4530) in any genre. In addition to these requirements, students must take 6 credits of electives in any 3000- or 4000-level English courses. A grade of C- or above must be earned in all minor coursework and a minimum GPA of 2.0 achieved in the minor. A minimum of 9 credit hours must be completed in MU coursework. Students who declare a major in English cannot simultaneously minor in Creative Writing.
