Writing (W): In addition to the Discernment & Discourse sequence, you will take two courses in which you compose coherent, well-supported and carefully edited essays and reports suitable for a range of different audiences and purposes. Two W-courses, beyond the Discernment and Discourse sequence, are required. NOTE: Writing Proficiencies must provide multiple opportunities for students to improve their writing. Just assigning written work is not sufficient.
