Everyone at Bucknell writes to create and communicate knowledge. With Writing Across the Curriculum, students develop as writers in the disciplines they choose. The Writing Center supports this broad community of writers.

Writing Program

At Bucknell, writing instruction takes place in writing-intensive courses offered at all levels in all disciplines. W1 courses offer a general introduction to college writing, while W2 courses allow students to practice rhetorical conventions in particular disciplines. All Bucknell undergraduate students must successfully complete one W1 course and two W2 courses before graduating. (learn more)

The Writing Center
