Minor in Creative Writing
Enhance Your Major
ODU's Creative Writing minor offers courses in a wide range of genres, encouraging experimentation with new practices as well as exploration of traditional genres of poetry, fiction, non-fiction, and other modes of non-academic writing.
Available to students majoring in any field at ODU, this program is very flexible and could pair well with a variety of majors, including Public Relations and Marketing (a natural fit), Sport Management (sports writing is big business), and even Biology, Biopsychology, and other medical-related majors (given a recent emphasis on “medical humanities” careers at many larger institutions).
