Writing Emphasis

The Field of Emphasis in Writing is for you if you love to write but are not majoring in it. You will take two core writing courses and four additional workshop courses of your choosing from creative and professional writing options.

As with a minor, a field of emphasis appears on your transcript. It is an excellent way to enhance your studies because it provides a concentration of courses that can complement your major or give you knowledge and expertise in a second field for which you have a passion. Graduate schools and employers are always happy to see a candidate who has proven skills as a writer.
