WRIT 1380 - FWS: Elements of Academic Writing

Spring. 3 credits. S/U grades only.

Permission of instructor required. Enrollment limited to: 12 students per section. First-Year Writing Seminar.


The Writing 1380 classroom is a dynamic workspace where students assemble the scholarly tools necessary to explore complex, interdisciplinary questions. Because WRIT 1370  is designed as a workshop, students develop the analytic and argumentative skills fundamental to interdisciplinary reading, research, and writing by collaborating with peers to pose questions, examine ideas, and share drafts. With smaller class sizes, two 50-minute class sessions and weekly student / teacher conferences, Writing 1370 provides an individualized setting for students to learn flexible and sustainable strategies for studying the essential elements of academic writing and for producing clear, precise academic prose that can address a variety of audiences and meet diverse rhetorical aims.
