Writing Intensive

MSUM Writing Intensive courses integrate writing with course content and provide a variety of both formal and informal occasions for students to write. Formal writing may include (but is not limited to) formats and genres characteristic of a particular field, such as a review of literature, a critical essay, an executive summary, or a laboratory report. Both formal writing and informal writing assignments are spaced reasonably across the semester, rather than being one long assignment at the close of the term. MSUM students are required to take five Writing Intensive courses before graduation.
