List of Writing Intensive and Writing Enhanced Courses

Stetson University offers writing enhanced and writing intensive courses for every year of a student's education to reinforce our ongoing commitment to excellence in writing and thinking for Stetson University graduates. These courses are taught with the expectation that students learn as a result of writing, not only that they write as a result of their learning. Students looking to improve their skills at written communication--skills that employers value in their employees--should investigate the opportunities for taking writing-enhanced courses.

Many writing-intensive courses can be used to fulfill the writing requirement. Some exceptions exist: first year and junior seminars cannot be used to fulfill the writing requirement, and some upper-level writing-intensive courses are available only for students majoring or minoring in those programs. Once a writing-intensive or writing-enhanced designation has been established, it is the responsibility of individual departments to make decisions about which students can enroll; the Writing Program does not control these decisions.
