Who are Hiram’s Writing Students?
They are those who wish to enhance their writing skills while focusing on other subject areas. They understand that having strong writing skills can open many doors for them. Students often combine the minor with a wide range of other disciplines, including Philosophy, Math, Environmental Studies, Biomedical Humanities, Psychology, Communication, History and Biology. They may instead consider majors in Creative Writing or English. Often, they help at The Writing Center, serving as paid assistants in first-year introductory courses.
Interested in the Writing Minor?
The minor in writing requires a firm commitment on the part of the student and approval by the writing faculty. There are two deadlines each year for submitting applications to pursue the minor in writing (November 1 and March 1). Students must apply by the end of their junior year. An electronic application form should be requested from Professor Mary Quade and submitted to her electronically at firstname.lastname@example.org.
