Writing Intensive Courses

UHMC—Writing Intensive mission statement: 

At UHMC, courses designated Writing Intensive provide students greater opportunities to explore and express their ideas thru writing. In smaller classes with more instructor attention, WI courses support students in the application of college-level thinking and writing.  

The College offers a series of writing intensive courses in which students engage in formal and informal writing assignments. Students also satisfy degree requirements at the College (two required for the AA degree), and at UH Mānoa (a minimum of five writing-intensive classes required).

The WI classes are designated with WI prefacing the course title (e.g., HWST 107 WI-Hawaiʻi: Center of the Pacific).
