Program Overview

Communication skills are must-have talents to work in creative fields, such as screenwriting, advertising and publishing. They are also important in other careers where you may have to write a grant proposal, a contract, a persuasive argument for a legal case, a public policy or a business plan. This minor can complement any major.

The English minor has two tracks — literature and writing — each with a specific focus. You will take courses focused on reading, writing and editing, as well as a selection of either literature or writing-intensive courses. You’ll gain valuable, real-world insights from our nationally renowned professors and professional writers who visit campus to share their expertise. You’ll also have the opportunity to contribute to “Montage,” Quinnipiac’s creative writing journal.
