The BA in Writing program from Rutgers University provides instruction to over 17,000 undergraduate students yearly.  We offer required writing classes and advanced courses in Business & Technical Writing, all of which prepare students to succeed throughout their academic careers at Rutgers and beyond.


The BA in Writing program from Rutgers University draws on full-time instructors, part-time lecturers, and teaching assistants from disciplines across the Arts and Sciences to staff more than 900 writing courses a year. We also provide tutoring, free of charge, in our Writing Centers located on the College Avenue Campus, Livingston Campus, and Douglass Campus.

To assist students in developing the critical thinking and writing skills most highly valued in the university, the Writing Program has developed a curriculum centered on student writing.  Our courses presuppose that the context for writing is always prior reading, and in this spirit, students spend time reading, discussing, and writing about texts that deal with some of the most important issues of our time: globalization, the rise of the "knowledge society," biotechnology, environmental decline, the encounter between different regions and cultures, the changing nature of identity, and the search for enduring values beyond the prospect of seemingly random change.

What We Are

The Writing Centers provided free tutoring for full time Rutgers University students enrolled in Writing Program and other writing intensive classes.
