Welcome to the UMass Amherst Writing Program!
Winner of the 2008-09 Program of Excellence Award from the Conference on College Composition and Communication!
Since 1982, we have been an independent academic unit serving the entire campus community, a key part of undergraduate General Education here. Our mission is to help students at UMass Amherst acquire the writing skills they need in their courses, their careers, and their lives in general.
We support more than 60 courses across campus as part of the University’s Junior Year Writing Program, named by U.S. News & World Report one of 25 “Programs that Work” in writing in the disciplines.
We provide free tutoring for students of all levels in our popular Writing Center, located in the Learning Commons of W. E. B. Du Bois Library.
