The Writing Program at Colorado College

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 Writing Intensive and Writing in a Discipline courses, grounding writing instruction in disciplinary practices.

For students who want more extensive help, additional adjunct and extended format classes include "Writing Enhancement" (a course for students of all levels who want to improve their writing skills) and "Advanced Written Practice in English as a Second Language.” Our “Topics in Advanced Writing Projects” adjuncts offer support for thesis work and grant writers.
