Composition Program

The English Department is committed to improving student writing, both for majors and non-majors. The Department coordinates the composition program, contributes expertise to the university's Writing Proficiency Exam, helps prepare faculty in other disciplines to teach writing, and offers numerous courses in essay writing and writing pedagogy as part of its undergraduate single subject teaching option and graduate concentration in rhetoric and composition. Nearly all upper-division literature courses require extensive writing, and the department offers a minor in both English and Creative Writing to non-majors.
