Summer 2 long 2016 Scheduled Writing-Intensive (W) Courses

Students who entered Queens College after the Fall 2009 semester but before the Fall 2013 semester follow the Perspectives in the Liberal Arts and Sciences (PLAS) curriculum, and must complete three Writing-Intensive (W) courses in order to graduate. Perspectives students may elect to take a Pathways EC-2 (College Writing 2) course as one of their three W courses.

Students who entered Queens College in the Fall 2013 semester or later follow the Pathways curriculum, and must complete two W courses in order to graduate.

To avoid the need to take extra courses, students should plan their course of study at Queens in a way that maximizes the overlap between W courses and courses taken to complete the requirements for their Major or other General Education requirements. Students who transfer from institutions that do not indicate writing-intensive courses on the transcript should make sure they receive credit for having completed the proper number of W courses. Contact the Advising Center (Kiely 217) if there are problems.

The following 7 writing-intensive courses are scheduled to be offered during the Summer 2 long 2016 semester. The list is accurate as of August 18, 2017, but may change as additional courses are scheduled or if scheduled courses are canceled during the enrollment period.

Courses in italics had fewer than 10% open seats as of August 18, 2017. (Abbreviations in parentheses give Perspectives and Pathways requirements also satisfied by each course.)
