The English Department is committed to improving student writing, both for majors and non-majors. Our First-Year Writing Program offers courses in college writing, and starting in Fall 2016 will offer courses in argumentative writing and critical thinking, technical writing, and professional and business writing. In addition, English Department faculty contribute expertise to the university's Writing Proficiency Exam, help prepare faculty in other disciplines to teach writing, and offers courses in essay writing, writing studies, and writing pedagogy at both the undergraduate and graduate level.
