Writing-Intensive Courses, often called W-Courses and designated by a W in the course listing, are courses that require students to apply writing in their understanding of the course content. As such, W-courses require students to write and revise their written work regularly with at least 50% of their grade in the course linked to the quality and content of their written submissions. The instructor of the W-course will outline and teach specific writing goals and provide individualized feedback on how students can improve their writing skills. Students should anticipate growth in both content knowledge and writing ability.
