• Hamline Plan for Writing

    Communicating effectively in writing is a central goal of the Hamline Plan for integrated, liberal education.

    The first-year college writing course is the beginning of writing at Hamline. The student then completes at least one writing-intensive course each year, with at least one of those courses in the student’s chosen major.

    A Hamline writing course has three objectives:

    1. to designate specific written communication objectives appropriate to the course and the discipline
    2. to enable the student to practice writing with guidance from the instructor, allowing feedback before the final product and building upon the student’s writing strengths
    3. to focus on the written communication process as well as the final product. The student gains experience writing and receiving feedback from the instructor and/or peers to build strengths in writing

    See the Hamline University Undergraduate Bulletin for more information about the writing requirements that prepare students to communicate effectively in writing.
