Students who are not English Language and Literature majors may complete a minor in English and Creative Writing. Such a minor requires six courses plus a portfolio of creative work. At least two of the required courses must be in Creative Writing, with at least one at the intermediate or advanced level. The remaining required courses must be taken in English Language and Literature. In addition, students must submit a portfolio of their work (e.g., a selection of poems, one or two short stories or chapters from a novel, a substantial part of the whole of a play, two or three nonfiction pieces) to the Associate Chair for Undergraduate Studies in the English department by the end of the fifth week in the quarter in which they plan to graduate.
