The unified writing curriculum offered by the Writing Program is designed to develop students' critical thinking, reading, and writing skills--core skills that provide the foundation for students' academic careers. Writing Program courses focus on reading and writing as interconnected processes that are central to academic inquiry. Students receive instruction and experience in identifying rhetorical strategies, analyzing concepts in individual works, exploring connections between works, and developing independent ideas while synthesizing multiple sources. Throughout the writing sequence, students develop the ability to read academic texts; to think about them critically; to discuss them knowledgeably and articulately; to write about them thoughtfully, analytically, and coherently; and to connect their ideas to those of others through effective research. The Writing Program also provides instruction and support to our multilingual students in the form of intensive sections, workshops, and tutoring. 


(Please see more on first-year students' writing requirements in the core curriculum section of this catalog).
