Office of Writing Programs

What We Do

The Office of Writing Programs (OWP) oversees all writing courses that are part of Line 10 the WTAMU CORE Curriculum (ENGL 1301, 1302 and 2311), as well as all Developmental Reading and Writing Courses (ENGL 0302, ENGL 0010, ENGL 0020, ENGL 0030, ENGL 0040).

What We Teach

WTAMU's CORE writing curriculm is structured around a rhetorical focus.  Why?  Most of the writing that you will do in your academic and professional careers is persuasive in nature.  By making you a better arguer, we will make you a better writer.  

How Can We Help You

Being able to write well is one of the most important skills that you can develop.  You will use it regularly in every class that you take, and survey after survey of potential employers indicate that it is skill they want most in new employees. You will carry the work that you do in ENGL 0302, 1301, 1302 and 2311 with you into the rest of your WTAMU career and beyond.
