Communication-Intensive Courses

Communication-Intensive Courses will be offered by English and the Writing Program, as well as by other departments across the university. All Communication-Intensive (CI) courses will provide experiences that build toward programmatic learning outcomes. CI courses use writing/communication to enhance students’ learning of the course content. Students use writing and other forms of communication to engage with course topics and questions in ways that demonstrate their growing participation in academic inquiry and knowledge-making.

The new GER begins with the class that matriculates in Fall 2023, so these courses are still under development. The English Department and Writing Program currently offer a variety of writing-intensive courses for students interested in continuing to develop their writing and communication skills (and those who have always loved writing, speaking, and reading!).
