IWP "C" and "W" courses with space (Winter 2017)

The Interdisciplinary Writing Program (IWP) has some space left for students looking for a "W" or "C" course, or for support writing in a field they plan to major or minor in (including the new Writing Minor!).

1) English 298E (MWF 1:00-1:50) and 298F (MWF 3:30-4:20), "Writing in the Social Sciences," linked to JSIS 201, "The Making of the 21st Century" (MWF 2:30-3:20).

    • Taught by senior IWP faculty member John O'Neill, these courses can help students interested in international studies, political science, economics, history, or related fields develop their writing skills in relation to those disciplines.
    • ENGL 298E and 298F provide students the opportunity to:
      • think critically about current events through the lens of news media such as the New York Times
      • explore concepts, cases, and texts assigned in JSIS 201
      • engage with peers in a supportive, small-group setting
      • talk with the instructor about writing in progress (and revise it before it's graded) 
      • improve academic/professional writing in social science fields 

2) English 199D, "Writing in Environmental Studies"  (MWF 10:30-11:20) linked with ENVIR 100, "Introduction to Environmental Studies" (MWF 9:30-10:20).

3) English 297D, "Writing in Film/Humanities" (MWF 12:30-1:20) linked with CMS 271,"From Art-House to Martial Films: Director Zhang Yimou" (MW 10:30-12:20).
4) English 299D, "Writing in/about Chemistry" (MWF 9:30-10:20) linked with CHEM 220,"Principles of Chemistry II" (MTWTh 8:30-9:20). 

As always, any IWP course can count for either "C" or "W" credit, and any 200-level IWP course counts toward the Writing Minor or English Minor.
