Program Development

Writing Emphasis

Writing in the Major

  • Writing in the Major is a programmatic and developmental approach to advancing writing and learning. Since writing, like other complex skills, develops over a long period of time, it is important to create a program that extends across the entire undergraduate experience. Department-based programs give special attention to students' capacities in formal writing and writing-to-learn. By acting collectively--with shared goals, expectations, criteria, and standards--instructors can have a potent, cumulative effect on students' writing and learning.
