Writing Intensive Program (WIP)
The Writing Intensive Program is comprised of undergraduate courses across the curriculum that fulfill the writing intensive graduation requirement. All students must successfully complete a writing intensive (WIP) course of at least 3 credit hours within their discipline in order to graduate. Please see the text of this requirement under Bachelor's Degree Graduation Requirements in this catalog. Students should speak with their advisor to confirm which course(s) will fulfill the WIP graduation requirement for their major. WIP courses are content courses that are designed to help students master the course content, learn about writing in their chosen discipline, and improve their writing skills.
CAW supports students enrolled in WIP courses that have WIP peer tutors and WIP writing fellows affiliated with them. WIP peer tutors and writing fellows are recommended by their departments and are hired and trained by CAW to provide support to students working on writing assignments in WIP courses. Students should speak with the instructor of their WIP course and/or contact CAW for information about WIP student support. Information is available on the CAW webpage or by contacting CAW by phone at (773) 442-4492 or by email at email@example.com.
The list below is a sample of WIP courses offered across the curriculum. Students should review the program requirements for their major and speak with their advisor to determine which WIP courses will fulfill the graduation requirement.
