Do you love reading, writing about, and discussing literature? If your answer is yes, then the Literary Studies Minor is right for you. In addition to the marketable skills you gain and polish as you fulfill the minor’s requirements, this minor combines enjoyment with intellectual excitement. Please note that this minor is available only to non-English majors and non-English Education majors.
Given the importance of communication in professional, civic, and personal lives, writing minors are proliferating around the country. The UW Professional Writing Minor (PWM) is designed for students in any major in which effective written communication is highly valued.
