First Year Writing

First Year Writing

New to writing at the college level? That’s what the First Year Writing Program (FYW) is for. The program consists of required courses in academic writing and rhetoric to help students develop their thinking, learning, and writing skills.


Director: Dr. Nate Kreuter

Associate Director: Dr. Joshua King

Assistant Director: Dr. Sara Steger

Administrative Associate: Kensie Poor

Students will compose essays, create multimodal projects, and design electronic portfolios to reflect on and showcase their work. In the 2018-2019 academic year, we offered 288 sections of First-year Composition and served thousands of UGA undergraduates.
