The Department of Writing & Rhetoric Studies (formerly the University Writing Program) was created in 1984 to ensure that students understand the forms and processes used by successful college-level writers, and that they continue to mature as writers in undergraduate and post-college settings.
Our faculty administer the required expository writing courses and assist departments and preprofessional programs in developing writing instruction for degree candidates in their specific fields. We offer a range of carefully developed undergraduate writing classes ranging from general courses in academic writing at the first-year college level to seminars in discipline-based and professional writing and rhetoric for upper-division students.
The University Writing Program is now The Department of Writing & Rhetoric Studies!
Assistant Professor Christie Toth has joined the faculty and will begin leading classes in Indigenous Literacies (WRTG 4050).
Fall semester classes begin on August 25th. Register now.
