Undergraduate students are required to take one Writing Intensive Course (WIC) in their major department. WIC courses are upper division content courses taught by faculty in the major. In WIC courses, informal, ungraded, or minimally-graded writing is used as a mode of learning course content. Students are also introduced to formal writing appropriate to the discipline or field, receive instruction on writing in the discipline, and are allowed to revise formal assignments after receiving feedback on drafts.
The School of Writing, Literature, and Film is proud to offer a wide range of WIC courses to meet the needs and interests of our students. The following is a list of our WIC courses. For more information on any of these classes, check out our course descriptions.
