ENGL C1010: University writing facilitates students’ entry into the intellectual life of the university by helping them to become more capable and independent readers and writers. With its small selection size and emphases on analysis, argumentation, revision, collaboration, and research, the course leads students to develop specific skills and general habits of mind important to their success as academic writers. Students read and discuss a range of contemporary essays, complete regular informal writing exercises, and write several longer essays.
The Undergraduate Writing Program sponsors a writing center in 310 Philosophy Hall that offers individual writing instruction and consultations to students enrolled in Columbia University courses. Students may visit the center at any stage in the writing process. The writing center consultants are advanced graduate students who have had significant training and experience teaching writing at Columbia. Students may walk in during open hours or sign up for appointments. For more information, please contact the center at firstname.lastname@example.org.
