*Note: The "W" after the course number indicates that this is a writing-intensive course. Students in these courses complete a combination of formal, high-stakes writing assignments and informal, low-stakes writing assignments with instructional support from the professor. The goal is not only to practice academic modes of writing, particularly in a given discipline, but also to learn course content through the act of writing itself.
