Teaching of Writing Emphasis

The Teaching of Writing emphasis offers a credential that will help students to distinguish themselves on the job market, as it indicates the achievement of a set of highly valued skills. The emphasis is open to degree-seeking students in any major and requires only an additional 9 hours in English.  Non-degree-seeking community members may also take the emphasis, but first must show successful completion of no fewer than 42 college credits, including a first-year English course passed with a C or better.  The Teaching of Writing emphasis was created to appeal to students considering a wide range of professions, as the ability to communicate complex ideas in clear writing is central to success in nearly every profession.
