First Year Writing Seminar

First-year students take First-Year Writing Seminars (FWS) through The Knight Institute, one of the country’s largest and most diverse programs in writing in the disciplines. Each semester, over 100 different courses are taught in more than 35 departments with programs located in the humanities, social sciences, expressive arts, and sciences. Through introductory work in each seminar’s particular field of study, students learn to write in a range of genres and in ways that emphasize clarity, coherence, intellectual force, and stylistic control.

Nolan students must take 3 credits of FWS unless exempt through AP or transfer credit. More information can be found here.
