Creative Writing Minor

Beginning in the academic year 2020-21, the Department of English will offer a Minor in Creative Writing to all undergraduates across the UCI campus. Please check this site and the General Catalogue in July for information on the requirements for the Minor and how to enroll.

From the academic year 2020-21 onwards, the Minor will replace the Emphasis in Creative Writing. Graduating students in the Emphasis may complete the program as planned through September 2020, and will receive a letter of completion from the department.  If you are planning to complete the Emphasis in Creative Writing by September 2020, please contact Inez Tan (ixtan@uci.edu) by May 15, 2020.

English majors already enrolled in the Creative Writing Emphasis will have their course credits transferred to the Minor.  English majors should direct their inquiries to Chad Horn (chorn@uci.edu). Non-English majors already enrolled in the Emphasis will have their course credits transferred to the Minor if they choose to continue the undergraduate creative writing curriculum.  Further inquiries should be directed to Inez Tan (ixtan@uci.edu).
