Writing and Editing Minor

Writing and Editing Minor

Program Description

Regardless of your chosen career field, chances are good that any expertise in written communication will be favorably noticed. Employers consistently say that well-rounded communication skills are more highly prized in a job candidate than industry-specific skills.

Minoring in Writing and Editing is a good idea, no matter what your major might be. You’ll be able to put the skills you learn into action in real time, which could make a big impact on your college success. You’ll have the opportunity to learn the foundations of both academic and professional writing. You will also be exposed to technical writing, editing, and a variety of business writing styles.
