The Writing Program, housed in the English Department, administers English 125 and 126, the College's required writing courses, and offers Writing 301, 302, 303 and 304.
Writing 301, 302, 303, and 304 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 courses will satisfy graduation requirements. Students should consult with a major advisor to determine which writing course to take.
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; Writing 304 is only for the English major. Some programs of study may require Writing 301, 302, 303, or 304 for admission into the major, or as a prerequisite for major courses, even if a student is exempt from some or all General Education requirements due to a prior degree.
All students entering the College between Fall 1996 and Spring 2013 (including transfer students) are required to complete Writing 301, 302, 303 or 304. Students who entered York before the Fall of 1996 and were readmitted to the College in Fall 1996 or later after an absence of three or more consecutive semesters must also take Writing 301, 302, 303 or 304. Students who enter with a previous baccalaureate degree are exempt from this requirement.
