College Writing - College Writing is a 3-credit, college-level course designed to give students practice in meeting the literacy demands of their future academic, professional, civic, and personal lives. It is the only course at UMass Amherst that satisfies the University's first-year writing requirement. The goal of College Writing (ENGLWRIT 112) is to help students develop their abilities to write–not only for their classes here at UMass Amherst but for their careers, their relations with others, and their own personal growth. College Writing is based on the assumption that students are writers and that writing is an activity inextricably embedded in context.
