The Fairmont State Liberal Studies Curriculum indicates that "students will be required to complete at least one designated writing intensive course as part of their liberal studies program or their major field of study. This course will not be in addition to their other courses, but rather a course from those approved as liberal studies or majors courses."
Writing intensive courses benefit students by:
1) improving writing skills as a means of self-expression
2) increasing knowledge and understanding of course content
3) enhancing critical thinking skills
