Writing Across the Curriculum

Eligible WI Courses per Department


Make Sure You Register for Three WI-Labeled Courses Prior to Graduation!


In addition to English Composition I and II, all undergraduate students must complete three courses labeled writing-intensive ("WI") at AUM prior to graduation: two WI courses in your major field of study and a third WI course which might be determined by your major or one which is the student's choice from the core curriculum or an elective. See your academic advisor for your specific WI requirements.

WI courses are taught by trained writing-intensive faculty. Please make sure that you sign up for three courses that carry the WI in the section field and in front of the course title in Webster.

The courses in the table below have been approved for writing-intensive instruction by the WAC Committee and Curriculum Committee. Contact your department head to find out which semesters the following courses will be taught as writing-intensive.
