College Writing


ENGLWRIT 112 (College Writing) is a first-year college-level writing course designed to help students expand their ability to write essays for academic, civic, and personal purposes and to develop their rhetorical awareness to write effectively in new social contexts. Based on the assumption that writing is a social activity, this course requires active engagement in the writing process, including pre-writing, peer review, revision, and editing. Students write five essays. This is the only course at UMass Amherst which satisfies the General Education College Writing (CW) requirement. Prerequisite: Placement into ENGLWRIT 112 through the Writing Placement Exam or a passing grade in ENGLWRIT 111 Basic Writing. May not be taken Pass/Fail. (Gen.Ed. CW)
