Good writing helps to form the foundation of academic success in college. That is why English Compsotion classes are required for all college students. Good writing facilitates clear thinking, and clear thinking is paramount to success in any discipline.
This fall, Western students have their choice of several writing courses, including the requisite English Composition (English 1010). There are several daytime sections of this course but also an evening section (1010 10) that meets Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30 - 6:45 p.m. This is a class that everyone has to take sooner or later in order to graduate. Sooner is better.
Other writing classes offered this fall include Introduction to Academic Writing (ENGL 1008-04 or 1008-06), which teaches students the fundamentals of writing well-sourced and well-researched academic papers.
The 04 section meets from 8 - 9:15 a.m. Wednesdays and Fridays, and the 06 section meets from 5:30 - 6:45 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays. Most of your other classes will be easier once you've taken this one.
Finally, for those who like to write creatively about their own lives, thoughts and experiences, Creative Writing: Journaling (ENGL 2064) meets Mondays and Fridays from 1 - 2:15 p.m. Learn how expressing yourself on paper can open up your thoughts, feelings and emotions and give you added insight into your own life!
