Writing Minor | Kent State University

Quill Pens

The Writing Minor is intended to provide academic recognition to students who have demonstrated their ability in writing.

The Minor helps to establish eligibility for graduate programs in writing or it provides evidence of training that may be offered to prospective employers.

Students from any college or discipline can enroll in the Writing Minor. No course work in this program may be taken pass-fail.

Here's how it's done:
  1. Make your declaration in your college first. 
  2. Come to the Writing Minor advisor in 206-C Satterfield Hall; bring the check sheets given to you by the college. You need to consult with this advisor, not your major advisor, about details relating to the Writing Minor.
  3. You should plan to take a total of eight courses: Four core writing courses; three cognates in the theory and practice of writing; and the Writing Portfolio course.
