University Writing Program
Eli Goldblatt, Director
Vanessa Allen-Smith, Secretary
The University Writing Program combines an entrance level
introduction to academic discourse with writing courses in the
disciplines at every level to provide Temple students a
comprehensive experience writing to learn and learning to write.
The main components of the program are:
- First Year Writing: See College of Arts and
Sciences: Programs: First Year Writing Program.
- Intellectual Heritage: See Colleges of Arts and
Sciences: Programs: Intellectual Heritage.
- Writing Intensive Courses: These courses, offered
by departments throughout the University, incorporate a
significant amount of writing (at least 10 pages in at
least 2 different assignments) within the context of
disciplinary work. They highlight the conventions and
argumentation accepted in the discipline, and they
require at least one revision based on response from a
professor, TA, writing associate, or peer-reviewer.
Temple students who spend their entire college career at
Temple are required to take 3 Writing-Intensive courses
in addition to Intellectual Heritage 51 and 52. One of
the W courses must be the capstone writing course
designated by the major department. All students
transferring into Temple must take at least two of their
Writing-Intensive courses at Temple. Intellectual
Heritage courses cannot be used to meet this transfer
