Area V

Goal: Students should broaden and deepen their liberal education through writing.

Two writing intensive courses outside of a student’s primary major pattern. Ordinarily, transfer courses may not be used to satisfy Area V general education requirements.


2 courses/units

Two courses outside of the student’s primary major must be writing intensive. Writing intensive courses are upper level and require formal expository writing of at least 15 pages; they encourage writing as a process by addressing writing concerns and conventions, and by providing the instructor’s critique of student writing. Qualifying courses are marked V at the end of the course description. Such courses may also satisfy requirements in Area III Cultural Traditions , Area IV (2+2) , and electives outside the primary major pattern. All Area V writing intensive courses have a prerequisite of FYS 1104 - First-Year Research Seminar .
