The UMass Writing Program’s main mission is to teach students to be the best possible writers in their careers at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and beyond.  Our staff is dedicated to providing ongoing professional development for our over 100 Teaching Associates so that we are putting the best possible teachers in our writing classrooms.  We all work together to develop and teach a curriculum that nods to our long-standing national reputation as a top writing program while remaining cutting edge. Our staff and Teaching Associates teach approximately 4,500 undergraduate first-year students in about 300 sections of Basic and College Writing each year.
