About this Program

Professional writing encourages students to develop expertise in writing for traditional print and emergent technologies, such as contemporary online/web-based or other formats, in technical writing courses.

Whether students have an interest in writing professionally or creatively for the page or online, the professional writing minor prepares students for a future in presenting the written word.

To complete this minor, students are required to pass 18 hours of topical study.
