Writing in the Disciplines Objectives


Component Area Option (B): Writing in the Disciplines (3 credit hours)


The objective of a writing in the disciplines component of a core curriculum is to enable the student to communicate effectively in clear and correct prose in a style appropriate to the subject, occasion, and audience.

Writing intensive courses require substantial writing (at least 3000 words, including at least one piece of work done outside of class and returned to the student prior to the end of the semester or term with the instructor’s written evaluation of grammar, style, and content).

The following courses satisfy the core requirements in Writing in the Disciplines. See the current Course Listings for prerequisites and other restrictions, additions, and deletions.
