Writing Across the Curriculum is a pedagogical practice that encourages the use of writing in every discipline.

When students write as part of the learning process, they improve not only their writing skills, but their ability to absorb ideas and think critically. Writing affords students a chance to “think through” an idea, as well as a way to express it.

The WAC program at Brooklyn College offers professors tips and tools for incorporating writing into their courses and for dealing with obstacles to student writing.

Writing Fellows are doctoral students and experienced teachers who are part of a CUNY-wide WAC initiative. They assist faculty in finding ways to use writing in their courses.
