Writing is fundamental to a Queens College education and is therefore integrated throughout the curriculum. The ability to write with confidence, purpose, and precision is essential to the success of Queens College graduates.
The College’s curriculum reflects ambitious “Goals for Student Writing” and aims to foster a commitment to ideas, engagement with texts, and control of language. Every student is required to complete College Writing 1: English 110, College Writing 2, plus two writing-intensive courses, which may be taken in any department that offers them.
Writing at Queens supports and administers the college’s writing curriculum, providing resources for students and for faculty. These resources emphasize writing practices that enable students and faculty to reflect on, understand, and explore knowledge within particular fields of study and the larger world these fields seek to understand. In addition, Writing at Queens integrates the college’s First Year Writing program, College Writing 2 courses, Writing Across the Curriculum and in the Disciplines initiative, Writing Center, and Writing-Intensive Sub-Committee.
