The Writing Culture
At Dickinson College, writing is considered a central component of a liberal arts education. Dickinson faculty value writing because it helps students solidify their learning, deepen their critical thinking skills, and practice the language and conventions of their disciplines. At every level and in every major, students receive countless opportunities to write. The Writing Program supports the teaching and learning of writing in First-Year Seminars and Senior Capstones, administers WR or writing-intensive courses, provides specialized classes for English language learners, and offers various courses in Writing Studies (WRPG).
