First-year writing courses are the centerpiece of the First-Year Experience and are part of the Core requirements at Brandeis. In these courses, students engage with writing as the practice of advanced learning and communication.
University Writing Center
The University Writing Center is the driving force of writing support on campus. We offer one-on-one consultations for writers of all levels in all subjects, working on anything from your first college essays to lab reports, senior theses, dissertations, and job and fellowship materials.
The University Writing Program offers writing resources for faculty and students at all levels — teaching and learning tools developed here at Brandeis and at writing centers and programs across the country.
Writing-intensive courses introduce students to the writing conventions and intellectual traditions of their major. Every academic discipline has its own requirements concerning form, style and methods of citation, which writing-intensive courses teach.
“I could not believe how effectively my colleagues had designed classes with a series of linked short writing exercises. It's changed how I design both undergraduate and graduate classes.”
