The Writing minor is designed to develop student skills in research and writing for multiple purposes. Students will work with faculty who will guide them in developing their analytical and writing skills in order to address multiple audiences, to organize information effectively, to confront issues critically and to articulate new knowledge about themselves, society and the world.
The Writing minor is an 18-hour sequence consisting of six courses. There are two foundational courses required for the Writing minor:
These are foundational experiences ensuring that students are well grounded in theories and vocabularies of writing in a variety of situations and for different intentions.
Each required course is a prerequisite for enrollment in four further courses related to the fundamentals addressed in each of the foundational courses. Subsequent courses concentrate on more focused topics, genre, form or purpose. At least one course must be taken at the 300 level.
Electives should be chosen in close consultation with an advisor to devise a program that both satisfies the student’s interests and involves sufficient breadth. Transfer students must take at least three courses at Roosevelt, at least one of which must be at the 300 level.
