The Writing Program provides a focused array of courses that support writing-across-the-curriculum at Stonehill:

  • First-Year Seminars explore engaging topics in a wide variety of fields and focus on improving students’ writing and thinking skills, laying a solid foundation for academic inquiry. We believe that writing and critical thinking are foundational skills, and our First-Year seminars emphasize frequent writing, close reading, and rigorous analysis.
  • Writing-in-the-Disciplines courses provide students with opportunities to write at a more advanced level within their chosen discipline. Our goal is to challenge students to write at increasing levels of sophistication and to develop versatility within particular fields.

The Writing Program is also responsible for placing students into writing courses, through a process called Guided Self-Placement and for training undergraduates to work in the Writing Center. The Writing Program also offers specialized courses in technical writing, writing and new media, rhetorical communication, peer tutoring, and writing-in-the disciplines.
