Program Description: Writing Across the Curriculum -- ENGWR 96, ENGWR 95 and ENGWR 306 -- helps students from all academic disciplines with any academic writing task. Students enroll in .5 unit of either class. Both classes are graded Pass/No Pass.

After a required orientation session, students will be able to attend:

  • individualized or small-group instructional conferences with English faculty or instructional assistants
  • workshops on a variety of grammar and composition topics, such as how to use MLA documentation, how to write great introductions, and how to develop a great thesis statement
  • a drop-in center

WAC serves all students, including those who have little or no experience with college writing, as well as students who are already skilled writers. These courses are not a substitute for any other English course.
