“It was beneficial to take ideas I learned in the minor and apply them to my major. I couldn’t go wrong gaining more writing skills, and I was able to personalize the minor to my interests.”
“The minor is more than just writing skills… you learn about who you are, what you want to do, your skills, your strengths and your weaknesses…”
“There is so much more to the minor than just writing. I enjoyed it because it was more than just writing. You write, you socialize, and you create pieces that aren’t just generic pieces of writing.”
“I wasn’t confident in myself as a writer, but don’t let that scare you because the minor is so much more than just writing skills. You gain knowledge in the minor that will let you succeed.”
