Very often we get all kinds of questions from students about writing. Below are some questions that come up often for faculty and students. Each question is answered in general guidance and resources. Contact one of our consultants at any stage of the writing process if your question is not listed.
What is a Writing Across the Curriculum course?
For graduation, all LIU Brooklyn students are required to take nine credits of writing-intensive courses. These courses include: English 16, Core Seminar, and a writing-intensive (WI) course in the major.
WI courses employ a writing-to-learn model, integrating significant formal and informal writing assignments into the curriculum. Each department designates which course will serve as the WI requirement for their majors. These courses are reviewed by the WAC department to ensure they meet the WI requirements and to offer support to faculty members teaching these classes.
