Found an upper-division, three- or four-unit course you would like reviewed as a creative writing or literature course for the minor? Make sure the course is clearly creative writing (not expository writing) or literature focused. Then, send your documentary evidence, often a course description and syllabus, to demir@berkeley.edu.

Remember all courses you take for the minor must meet the minor requirements too.
