Writing Program

Welcome to the Writing Program at Hanover Collegehtml5-dom-document-internal-entity1-excl-end

Hanover College follows the established Writing Across the Curriculum and Writing Within Disciplines model of writing instruction, which honors the full range of professional writing, while re-enforcing good writing skills over the course of a student's entire education. Students not only learn the essentials of college-level writing in general, but also the particular styles and techniques of writing within their chosen field of study, in preparation for professional life.

Students complete a Writing Intensive course (W1), in any number of disciplines, in the first year where they learn the basics of college-level writing and thinking, including the skills necessary to take clear and purposeful positions on subjects of importance. By the end of their junior year, students also complete a second Writing Intensive course (W2), in a discipline of their choice or in their major, which introduces them to the research skills, methods, and writing within that discipline.
