Writing Programs

Scope and Objectives

Students need to develop their proficiency as writers and communicators at every stage of their university careers and beyond. Writing Programs offers a series of courses introducing the varieties of university discourse and offering instruction in basic to high-level skills. Besides courses that satisfy the University of California Entry-Level Writing requirement and UCLA English as a Second Language, Writing I, and Writing II requirements, Writing Programs offers language support for international teaching assistants, and administers the Undergraduate Writing Center. In addition, Writing Programs offers advanced elective writing courses for undergraduates as well as graduate courses in writing pedagogy that may lead to a certificate.
