TO FIND APPROVED LITERATURE COURSES OFFERED DURING FALL 2020, compare the approved list of literature courses on the Creative Writing Minor website with the Fall 2020 Schedule of Classes in CalCentral.

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.
