Undergraduate Writing Website

ENGL CC1010 University Writing is designed to help undergraduates read and write essays in order to participate in the academic conversations that form Columbia's intellectual community. The course gives special attention to close reading, rhetorical analysis, research, collaboration, and substantive revision. By writing multiple drafts of essays typically ranging from three to ten pages, students will learn that writing is a process of forming and refining their ideas and their prose. Rather than approaching writing as an innate talent, the course teaches writing as a skill that can be practiced and developed. Each section of University Writing has a theme. None presume that students will arrive with any background in that area.
