Writing Intensive Hub Guide

Writing is fundamental, the most important form of expression that BU undergraduates must develop. In the academy and in almost every professional setting, BU graduates must be able to express their ideas in coherent prose. Effective writing demands the honing of skills, but it also cultivates ways of thinking, evaluating evidence, constructing responsible and convincing arguments, and generating creative ideas. As effective writers, BU graduates will pay close attention to the potential readers of their writings; as responsible writers, they will take ownership of their message and the means of communicating it, and hold their writing to high standards of truth, accuracy, validity, and humaneness.
