Writing in the Majors (WM) courses are designed to introduce students to the conversations in the field and invite them to join those conversations using the writing style and format of the discipline. The purpose of WM courses is to teach students to understand and practice the kinds of writing that are specific to the discipline (or combination of disciplines) they are studying. For this reason, no two WM courses look the same; however, all WM courses and course sequences share the same broad goals.
