• Writing (Minor)

  • Overview

    The Writing minor is offered through Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts. This page outlines the requirements for the minor. Students who major in Literary Studies at Lang (BA, Literary Studies) can also choose the Writing concentration. 

    Students in Writing develop a unique authorial voice informed by an acquired familiarity with contemporary and classic styles. Courses emphasize essential communicative and research skills, a profound understanding of craft, and the development of personal voice in an encouraging atmosphere.
