Every Georgetown student will take one writing course, WRIT-015 Writing and Culture Seminar, which provides students with opportunities to connect their writing with critical reading and thinking, inquiry, and analysis. The Writing and Culture Seminar approaches writing through three interrelated frameworks: writing as a tool for inquiry, writing as a process, and practice writing in different rhetorical situations. Each section focuses on a cultural theme, with readings and assignments that engage students with compelling questions and problems. Seminar readings provide texts for analysis as well as models and motives for student writing.
Students are encouraged to complete this course during their first year at Georgetown.
Note: The writing requirement replaces the first half of the older Humanities & Writing requirement. Students in the Classes of 2017 and earlier who have not yet fulfilled the Humanities and Writing I requirement should enroll in WRIT-015, which replaces HUMW-011.
