Writing Intensive

Through courses with a writing intensive designation (WI), you will learn to further develop and articulate content knowledge and critical thinking through frequent practice of informal and formal writing. You will learn to demonstrate understanding of audience expectations, genres, and conventions appropriate to a specific academic discipline or related profession. The WI course will require you to compose one or more papers totaling at least 3,000 words through the stages of writing—brainstorming, drafting, integrating sources, and revising comprehensively after receiving substantial, formative feedback on drafts.

You must fulfill the first-year composition requirement before enrolling in a writing intensive course.
