Quarter Curriculum - For Reference Only

Effective fall 2013, RIT will convert its academic calendar from quarters to semesters. The following content has been made available as reference only. Currently matriculated students who began their academic programs in quarters should consult their academic adviser for guidance and course selection.

The writing studies minor offers students the opportunity to develop and practice writing skills in a variety of contexts; the competencies needed to be effective, confident, and versatile when facing writing challenges in the workplace; and an understanding of the theoretical and historical foundations underlying written communication and linguistics. The minor accommodates students with a wide variety of writing interests, disciplinary majors, and professional goals.
