  • Writing Across the Curriculum

    Writing is an essential skill for successful academic, professional, and civic engagement. From the first-year college writing experience to writing-intensive courses across disciplines and in the major, the Hamline undergraduate curriculum prepares students to write effectively in diverse contexts.

    The Hamline Plan for Learning to Communicate Effectively in Writing 

    Learn how one of the longest standing and most comprehensive Writing Across the Curriculum programs helps students learn to use writing to synthesize new material, analyze complex problems, explore possible solutions, generate innovative ideas, express their thoughts, reflect on their actions, and communicate and collaborate with others.

    The First-Year College Writing Experience  

    Hamline provides diverse learning experiences to prepare first-year college students for the demands of critical writing across academic and professional communities. Clearly-mapped learning goals, guided practice, and formative feedback help students work towards high standards for their writing.

    Writing-Intensive Courses across Disciplines and in the Major 

    Hamline Plan requirements ensure that students write in diverse disciplinary contexts over time in order to develop adaptable writing processes as well as deeply-learned writing skills. Through writing-intensive courses in the major, students learn to write to the specific expectations of their chosen fields. See a sample of recent writing-intensive course offerings from across Hamline’s undergraduate majors.
