Campus Writing Program

MU’s Campus Writing Program was created because Writing Intensive (WI) courses help produce an educated, articulate citizenry capable of reasoning critically, solving complex problems, and communicating with clear and effective language. MU’s writing requirement — English 1000, followed by two WI courses — is part of a 30-year-old trend in U.S. higher education known as “writing across the curriculum,” or “writing in the disciplines.” Since 1987, every undergraduate degree granted by MU has been strengthened by the WI requirement.

Over 170 courses from disciplines across the university are offered each semester.
