In 2000, the Writing & Rhetoric Minor was designed in response to demand from students in many majors. Now, we offer even more choices and more flexibility.
Students who declare a minor in Writing & Rhetoric must complete 18 credits from WRT courses at or above the 200-level. Typically, this will entail six 3-credit courses over four years. 100-level courses and WRT 391 and 392 will not be counted as part of the minor.
There is no need to declare your minor before taking courses toward it. Simply take the six required classes and pass them with a 2.0 GPA. Then, at the beginning of your final semester, fill out a "Minor Fields of Study" form, and bring it by the Writing & Rhetoric office for the Director's signature.
Students must take at least one 200-level course. Choices include:
The remainder of your courses will be taken at the 300- and 400-levels. Options are:
Students can apply toward the minor a maximum of 3 credit hours each earned through WRT 383 and WRT 484.
