Writing major and minor
The writing major and minor provide a flexible way to pursue a career in writing. You can choose to focus your coursework in creative writing or in professional and technical writing. The minor allows you to explore an interest in writing while majoring in another academic discipline.
- Fiction courses are taught by Susan Streeter Carpenter, whose novel Riders on the Storm was published in spring 2010.
- Jeff Gundy, who teaches poetry and nonfiction, has published five books of poems, most recently Spoken among the Trees (Akron, 2007) which won the Society of Midland Authors Poetry Award. Gundy also contributed to the book Making Poems: Forty Poems with Commentary by the Poets, which was published in 2010.
This major can be completed in three years if you are a dedicated and ambitious student.
