Goals for Tarleton's WI Program and Courses

Goals for Tarleton's WI Program and Courses

The Writing Intensive Program at Tarleton State University is founded on the belief that students should write throughout their university careers beginning with freshman composition classes and then progressing through upper-level courses in their major fields of study. The program's intent is to focus more attention on writing both as a means of gaining knowledge and as a way to shape and present knowledge within discipline-specific professions. The goals for the Writing Intensive Program at Tarleton State University are to achieve the best results from both Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) programs and the best results from less traditional Writing in the Disciplines (WID). We hope the achieve these purposes:

  1. To improve the overall academic writing abilities of all Tarleton State University students, and
  2. To develop professional writing abilities of all Tarleton State University students within their major field of study
