The Professional Writing minor at Wilmington College is designed for a student to explore an interest in writing while still maintaining the flexibility to pursue a major. Students will take a core of three required courses and select the rest of their courses from an elective pool. The professional writing minor allows students to have a clear skill set in writing emphasized on their college transcript and enable many students with pre-professional majors to complement their major with a minor that advertises how well they can write.
