Students in class

First-Year Writing Seminars (WR 120) and Writing, Research, & Inquiry Seminars (WR 150, WR 151, WR 152, and WR 153) are offered in for a wide range of interdisciplinary topics.  Although they differ with regard to content, all writing seminars lead students through a common sequence of writing assignments. These build upon each other, providing a context for steady improvement. For more information about the course goals of writing classes, please visit the course pages.

Some students who are English language learners may be advised to take WR 111 and/or WR 112 prior to WR 120.
