Writing, Speaking,
and Argument Program


Upper-Level Writing Requirement

Our bachelor’s degree candidates are expected to acquire significant writing experience during their undergraduate years. That’s why each major incorporates student writing into its curriculum or degree requirements. 

Double majors should plan to gain writing experience in each of their majors.
