About the Academic Writing Program

The Academic Writing Program at the University of Lethbridge began as a pilot program in 2002. Developed as a collaboration between the Faculties of Arts and Science and Management, the program was created to help students develop effective university-level reading, writing, and reasoning skills—skills essential to becoming an effective participant in the modern research university, skills that are equally important in personal and professional contexts.

The Academic Writing Program currently offers sections of Writing 1000 on its Lethbridge and Calgary campuses. For information about enrolling in Writing 1000, please see Academic Advising.
