Believing that students write more forcefully about subjects that interest them, the faculty has decided against requiring a conventional composition course. Instead, Colorado College offers a multilevel program designed to help students improve their writing.
Colorado College wants its graduates to be able to write clear and cogent analytical prose. We encourage CC undergraduates to view writing as a means to develop understanding across the liberal arts curriculum. Faculty members from many fields offer Writing Intensive and Writing in the Discipline courses, grounding writing instruction in disciplinary practices.
