The Writing Program administers the College's required writing courses and offers Writing 301, 302, and 303, courses that are designed to help students acquire the research and writing abilities needed in the work of their major, for graduate studies, and in their professional careers. All students entering the College between Fall 1996 and Fall 2013 (including transfer students) are required to complete Writing 301, 302, or 303. Writing 301 is recommended for majors in the humanities and social sciences; Writing 302 is recommended for majors in the natural sciences, mathematics, and technology; Writing 303 is recommended for majors in the professional programs. All courses will satisfy graduation requirements. Students should consult with a major advisor to determine which writing course to take. Students who entered York before the Fall of 1996 and are readmitted to the College in Fall 1996 or later after an absence of three or more consecutive semesters must also take Writing 301, 302 or 303. Students who enter with a previous baccalaureate degree are exempt from this requirement.
