• Writing Across the Curriculum

  • First-Year Writing

    The first-year writing requirement is generally fulfilled through enrollment in English 1110: Writing and Reading Texts.

    Students who receive Advanced Placement (AP) or International Baccalaureate (IB) English composition credit or otherwise have significant critical writing experience have the option of registering for a writing-intensive First-Year Seminar (FYSEM) to fulfill the first-year writing requirement.

    All English 1110 classes and all writing-intensive FYSEMs give students a foundation in critical reading, thinking, and writing skills, and provide the guided experience to help students meet high writing standards.

    Additionally, English 1100 offers writing skills development focused on the particular needs of English Language Learners or International Students.

    If you are granted credit for a PSEO or College in the Schools (CIS) English composition course, this will generally satisfy your first-year writing requirement. However, you are encouraged to enroll in a writing-intensive FYSem to continue developing your college writing skills. If you have taken college courses through a PSEO program, you must have your transcript sent to Hamline to be evaluated for transferability.
