Across the Curriculum is a program that promotes writing as an effective
way of teaching and learning in any discipline: anthropology, chemistry,
mathematics, physics, or any other subject.
In writing-intensive (WR) courses, students have the opportunity to
learn the course content through both formal and informal writing assignments.
Formal assignments, written for a reader, require a minimum of 2000
to 2500 words per course; informal assignments, written largely for
one's self, are instructor-specific. They help the student to think
on paper and work through the course content.
Through writing, students increase their understanding of course content
and learn the importance of writing as an expression of thinking. Students
also benefit by enhancing their writing skills while creating for themselves
a high-quality education. A strong writing background also helps students
when they are seeking jobs or admissions to other colleges and universities.
