Creative Writing Minor


The minor in creative writing consists of six courses. Four courses must be in creative writing (courses with the attribute code CVW), and the remaining two courses must be in literature: ENGL courses above the 3000 level or courses offered in other departments with the attribute code ENGL.

Requirements for English Majors

In order to minor in creative writing, students majoring in English must complete four additional courses beyond those already required for the major (i.e., six courses are normally required for the minor, but two creative writing courses are double-counted). In other words, completion of the creative writing minor requires two additional creative writing courses (courses with the CVW attribute) and two additional literature courses as described above.


The minor in English is available at Fordham College at Rose Hill; Fordham College at Lincoln Center; and Fordham School of Professional Studies at Rose Hill, Lincoln Center, and Westchester.
