Declaring and Completing

During remote learning periods, the Creative Writing Minor Declaration Application and Completion of L&S Minor Form may be emailed to Laura Demir, Creative Writing Minor Student Academic Advisor, at demir@berkeley.edu.

Declaring the Creative Writing Minor

Students may declare the minor no later than the term before their Expected Graduation Term (EGT) as posted in My Academics in CalCentral and after they have completed two approved creative writing courses or one approved creative writing course and one approved literature course for the minor. They may also declare the minor after the fourth week of the term before their EGT if they are enrolled in two approved creative writing courses or one approved creative writing course and one approved literature course for the minor. To declare, students must complete a Creative Writing Minor Declaration Application and submit it to the Creative Writing Minor Student Academic Advisor, Laura Demir. Her mailbox is in 258 Evans Hall. If the declaration application is approved, Creative Writing will be added as a minor program to the student's My Academics.

Completing the Creative Writing Minor

Students who have or will be completing the minor by taking the five required courses and satisfying all minor requirements, must complete a Completion of L&S Minor Form during their Expected Graduation Term (EGT) as posted in My Academics in CalCentral, obtain the signature of their major advisor on the form and submit the form to the Creative Writing Minor Student Academic Advisor, Laura Demir, by the due date noted on the form. Her mailbox is in 258 Evans Hall. If the completion of the minor is confirmed, the Creative Writing Minor will appear on the student's final transcript.
