The writing minor is designed to give you a thorough overview and understanding of the field of English studies with broad coverage of literary periods and theories and a solid foundation in writing and argument. The minor is also designed with flexibility in mind, so you can focus your major around your individual interests and explore cross-disciplinary thinking. The English Major works well as a double-major with many other programs on campus. Individual course selection will be done in consultation with your faculty adviser.

    Students must complete a minimum of five courses (20 units) with a Pacific minor grade point average of 2.0 in order to earn a minor in writing. English Majors can count 2 courses from their Major requirements towards the Writing Minor.
