Expect Challenge. Achieve Distinction.

The writing minor offers opportunities to study creative, persuasive, environmental, and sports writing, along with journalism and writing in digital environments.

The writing minor offers a sustained focus on skills employers value in college graduates, especially concerning connections between writing, technology, and creativity as well as collaboration, creativity, problem solving, innovation, and new media literacy. The writing minor prepares students for the tasks expected from today’s employers.

Outside of the classroom, students can explore writing as reporters for our school newspaper, The Guidon, and publish creative work in or serve as editors with The Chameleon Literary Journal. They can meet celebrated novelists, screenwriters, poets, and playwrights who visit campus through our NU Writers Series, and those interested in playwriting and screenwriting can see their work on stage with Pegasus Players and on-screen at the annual NU Film Festival.
