Department of English

Minors in Writing at CCSU!

To better meet the needs of a wider range of aspiring writers, editors and CCSU students simply eager to develop more sophisticated writing skills, the English Department has developed two robust minors that have many overlapping electives but two different core objectives. The Creative Writing Minor focuses on a classic literary sequence of poetry, fiction and narrative nonfiction. The Minor in Writing has a more practical bent and offers more opportunities to explore how to apply writing and editing skills in a range of environments, including publishing and online media.

If you are not sure which program is best for you, don't worry! Most of the courses have few prerequisites beyond ENG 105/110 (grade C- or higher) and meet either a core requirement for a minor or count as an elective.
