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" in the course description listed in the Catalog. Prerequisite to a writing emphasis course is a satisfactory performance on the Upper-Division Writing Proficiency Examination (UDWPE) or, for those students whose UDWPE is evaluated as unsatisfactory, further developmental work in writing (students should consult with their academic advisors for specific information about their department's requirements).

Other composition/writing requirements include:
