WRITING ACROSS THE CURRICULUM (WAC)

To support the institutional goal of developing professional communication skills required writing and communication-intensive courses are designated in both the core and in the degree-granting programs. According to guidelines approved by the Undergraduate Council, degree-granting programs are to identify four courses, often two junior and two senior-level courses, as writing-intensive. The (generally four) writing-intensive courses within the various degree-granting programs are designated with (WI) in their course descriptions. Course descriptions can be found on the Undergraduate Programs and Departments page, under the Courses tab for each department.

In addition to disciplinary writing experience, students also obtain writing experience outside their disciplines as courses in HASS are virtually all writing intensive. The Campus Writing Program, housed in the Division of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences (HASS), supports the WAC program.​​​
