Third-Year Writing Experience (WID)

Writing In Your Discipline

Junior-level writing courses focusing on writing in your discipline (WID) at Valparaiso University

Writing in the Discipline (WID) courses integrate writing and information literacy into discipline-specific assignments. These courses are specific to each major and are part of Valpo’s vertical writing program. The WID requirement will take effect with the entering class of students in Fall 2020.

WID courses are designed for juniors who have already taken:

  • Valpo Core 110 and 115 or Christ College Freshman Program*
  • At least one WIC course*

*Or comparable courses for transfer students
