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 offers a foundation for four further courses related to the fundamentals addressed in each of the required courses. Subsequent courses concentrate on more focused topics, genre, forms 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.
