Writing-intensive courses give students practice in academic, professional, creative, personal, and civic writing genres. Writing assignments should be suitable to course learning outcomes and the disciplinary expectations of the field in which the course is being taught. Writing can support, or be embedded in, a variety of communicative forms such as posters, data visualizations, and multimedia. Although we invite faculty to include these types of assignments, all writing-intensive courses should provide students with substantial opportunities to produce and revise prose. The following requirements provide direction for how writing-intensive classes should be designed. How a course will meet these guidelines should be indicated on CEP proposals for W-courses and all W-intensive course syllabi. If you feel like any of these requirements are inappropriate to a writing course you hope to design, please communicate those concerns when you coordinate with the Curriculum and Educational Policy Committee during the course proposal stage.
