Each student takes a writing intensive course which focuses on persuasive writing (WRP). These courses are offered throughout the curriculum and also fulfill General Education and/or major requirements. In this stage of writing development, students deepen their abilities to think analytically and to use information and language with precision and deliberation. They practice adapting their general skills of analysis, synthesis, and evaluation to the specific conventions and modes of inquiry associated with the discipline in which the WRP course is offered. A student takes this course after FYE and before the end of the sophomore year.
