Brooklyn College Writing Across the Curriculum


What is the Writing Intensive (W) Requirement?

WRITING INTENSIVE REQUIREMENTS FOR BROOKLYN COLLEGE STUDENTS

COLLEGE WIDE REQUIREMENTS:

All students must satisfy the College Writing Intensive requirement by (1) completing a writing-intensive course (designated with a W after the number) or (2) completing a writing-intensive major (currently English, Music, Philosophy, and Political Science). Students should be aware that most programs require one or more W courses within their major or a related discipline. See “Transfer Students” for waiver regulations.

WRITING INTENSIVE REQUIREMENTS FOR TRANSFER STUDENTS:

Transfer students will satisfy Brooklyn College’s writing intensive requirement if they: (1) successfully complete a Brooklyn College writing-intensive (W) course; (2) fulfill the requirements of a writing-intensive major; (3) submit to the registrar a transcript or course description from another college verifying that they have taken a designated writing-intensive course (most of these courses will be identified automatically within the normal transfer evaluation process); or (4) demonstrate that they have had such a course by submitting an acceptable portfolio of previous college writing to the head of the program in the discipline of the course. If a course taken at another college is deemed equivalent to a Brooklyn College W course, except that it is not writing intensive, credit for the Brooklyn College W course will be granted. Whereas an AA or AS degree from CUNY satisfies the College W requirement, no Associates degree automatically satisfies the writing intensive requirement in the major.
