A minor is an optional component of a student’s degree that will be reflected on the student’s transcript. Minors are an excellent way for students to customize their learning experience and craft a degree program that is uniquely theirs. Students can even earn multiple minors to supplement a bachelor's degree. For example, students pursuing a degree in interpersonal communication might find that a minor in sociology is an excellent pairing, while a student pursuing a degree in public administration might add a minor in sustainability issues to help create a cleaner, greener future. And in some cases, employers offer bonuses or higher salaries to employees who have a foreign language minor.

 A Creative Writing minor means more than just writing stories. Creative writing is at the center of all communication, whether it occurs in the business world, education, or just as a means of conveying information to another person. Of course, creative writers also find their talents needed as writers of books and magazines, television programs, movies and plays, greeting cards and songs. The successful creative writer can tap into emotion and logic and move society forward by presenting skillfully crafted and entertaining arguments. A Creative Writing minor complements degrees in education, business, law, science, and the performing arts, as well as all of the liberal arts.
