The Writing Program

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. Faculty members from many fields offer courses that include writing.

For students who want more extensive help, many departments offer one- and two-block courses with an emphasis on writing in standard academic subjects. Additional adjunct and extended format classes include "Writing Practicum" (a course for students of all levels who want to improve their writing skills) as well as two courses that support our students who are multi-language speakers, "Advanced Written Practice in English as a Second Language" and "Advanced Oral Practice in English as a Second Language."
