Writing Emphasis Course
Every undergraduate degree program includes at least one required writing
emphasis course. Writing emphasis courses are regular junior- or
senior-level courses in an academic discipline in which at least half the
grade awarded is determined by written work appropriate to the academic
discipline. Such courses are identified with the phrase "Writing Emphasis
Course" at the end of the course description listed in the Catalog.
