The Writing Programs at the University of Maryland offer
instruction and guidance in academic and professional writing. Academic Writing (ENGL101)
focuses on academic writing, while the Professional Writing Program (ENGL
390-395 and 398) prepares students for writing challenges beyond the
university. The Writing Center provides assistance to undergraduates with
writing assignments from any course across campus.
The Writing Programs are administered by their three directors with the
support of the department's Director of Writing Programs and the Writing
Committee. All composition and rhetoric faculty and other English department
faculty appointed by the chair comprise this committee. Representatives from
the committee also serve on the Campus Writing Board, a venue for considering
writing across the university.
