College Writing Programs

University of California, Berkeley


College Writing Programs teach writing as a craft, and work with students at all levels of expertise, from those wishing to satisfy the University's composition requirements, through intermediate writers looking to expand their horizons, to seasoned scribes who want to hone their skills in our upper-division courses.

For information regarding the Entry-Level Writing requirement and the Analytical Writing and Placement Exam, see the Undergraduate Education section in this Guide.
