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.
