Student in lab

While the Writing Program offers an array of strong first-year courses to help students begin to develop as writers, Writing Intensive (WIN) courses and other writing within the disciplines occurs across all undergraduate BU schools and colleges in upper level courses. The Writing Program supports undergraduate writing in the disciplines in a variety of ways.

WID serves as a resource to academic units by informing them about relevant scholarship on writing in the disciplines, helping them understand best practices for commenting on student papers, consulting with them about the design of assignments and assignment sequences, and so on.
