In addition to offering courses that fulfill campus writing requirements, the Writing Program offers elective undergraduate courses in writing center pedagogy (tutor training), as well as courses and independent studies for students who want to undertake advanced work as writers.
These courses currently include:
- Writing 159: Grammar for Tutors and Teachers: This course provides students an understanding of the possibilities, and critical limitations, of grammar instruction. This course is typically taken after Writing 169 by students applying to be writing tutors.
- Writing 161: Academic Writing and Research Methods: This course builds on what was learned in Writing 2 to build a more diverse methodological toolbox for writing and research projects.
- Writing 169: Theory and Practice of Teaching Writing: This course focuses on teaching writing in one-on-one environments. This course is typically taken by those interested in being writing tutors.
- Writing 93: Field Study: These are independent studies for lower-division single students or small groups of students taught by Senate faculty in the Writing Program.
- Writing 193: Field Study: These are independent studies for upper-division single students or small groups of students taught by Senate faculty in the Writing Program faculty.
The Writing Program also offers graduate courses in writing pedagogy.
