Department of English Composition

Overview

Welcome to the Composition Program at WSU.  The WSU Composition Program endeavors to prepare students for composing a variety of texts that will support their undergraduate careers as well as their lifelong participation in various communities.  Courses supporting this work are offered at every undergraduate level and are guided by the WSU Learning Goals for the Baccalaureate Degree as well as goals outlined by various professional organizations including the National Council for Teachers of English and the Council of Writing Program Administrators.  The Composition Program also is responsible for the preparation of WSU’s Composition teachers.

If you have questions about working with writers whose native language is not English, click on ESL resources or contact our ESL coordinator, Nancy Bell.

Whether you are a current or prospective WSU student, a teacher, or a visitor wanting to know more about the WSU Composition Program, we hope you will find the resources you are looking for at this site.  If you have suggestions for improvements or additions to the site, please email Dr. Patricia Freitag Ericsson, the Director of Composition.
