What are writing-intensive courses—and who can take them?

The Franklin College Writing Intensive Program (WIP) supports a number of writing-intensive courses across the disciplines, including all introductory biology laboratory courses, as well as a wide variety of courses across the arts, humanities, and sciences ranging from introductory to capstone courses.

WIP courses aim to teach students that writing is a mode of learning and a process. Further, teaching writing in the discipline-specific classes means helping students learn the processes and conventions that shape academic writing in the disciplines.

These courses are available to undergraduate students in the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences and the Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources.
