Winter 2014 Courses

Minor in Writing Capstone
In this course, students enrolled in the Minor in Writing will complete the journey they began in the Writing Minor gateway course, WRITING 220. The capstone course asks students to aggregate, synthesize and evaluate writing they have completed both for the Writing Minor and across their undergraduate curriculum by producing a cumulative electronic writing portfolio that will showcase their skills and development. The capstone course also presents students an opportunity to create an individualized, intensive writing project that concentrates their interests and compositional strengths. As with all courses in the Writing Minor, emphasis will be placed on reflection, multimodal and multimedia composition, and workshop collaboration.
