Writing Studies is a field built on interdisciplinary research that focuses on how literacy functions, how technologies and media shape communications, how creativity, identities, and knowledge are managed, and how writing offers access to the infrastructures of social and political power.
A minor in writing explicitly engages students in the writing process and fosters their development as writers in academic and pre-professional contexts.
Writing courses train students in academic discourse and provide them with extensive opportunities for professional development within and across the disciplines. Emphasizing writing as a process, writing minor courses offer challenging curricula that develop students' abilities to research, synthesize, and innovate.
