Detailed Description:

The AUM Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) program seeks to improve the quality of student writing campus-wide by incorporating writing-intensive instruction into all undergraduate programs of study.   Specifically, all undergraduate students are required to complete five WAC courses in order to graduate: (a) two English Composition courses, ENGL 1010 and 1020; and (b) three courses labeled as writing-intensive (WI), two of which must be within the student’s major.   The WAC program provides focused instruction to improve students’ writing skills throughout their academic careers, culminating in writing proficiency specific to their selected future careers. This training to write in a professional field gives AUM graduates an advantage in the workplace. For more information, please visit www.aum.edu/writing.
