Minors in Writing at CCSU!

Creative Writing Minor Requirements

Required

One class apiece in poetry, fiction and narrative nonfiction.

Since all Level II classes require the Level I classes, we recommend students take ENG 370 (Creative Nonfiction I), ENG 371 (Fiction I) and ENG 373 (Poetry I) and then select a genre and take at least a Level II and Level III in that genre.

For example, in Narrative Nonfiction the sequence would be ENG 370 (CNFI), ENG 375 (CNF2) and ENG 483 (CNF3).

Total Credit Hours: 18
