When should I take Writing 1000?

Most students find that taking Writing 1000 sooner than later is best. Students who take the course early in their academic program typically feel more confident in their writing and more comfortable working in the genres of writing that are typical in the modern research university.

The Academic Writing Program recommends that you take Writing 1000, when possible, in your first year on campus. Often students enjoy better grades and read and write more efficiently and effectively in subsequent courses due to their improved rhetorical and compositional skills.

Check out what some of our students say about Writing 1000 and how it has helped them in their academic careers.

The Academic Writing Program offers multiple sections of Writing 1000: Introduction to Academic Writing each term on all three campuses, including a limited number of sections each year in Summer Session I and Summer Session II/III.

If you have any questions about the benefits of this course and when to take it, please do not hesitate to contact one of the members of the Academic Writing Program or speak to Academic Advising.
