WRIT Undergraduate Units
WRIT units are designed to help all writers strengthen their academic writing and are open to all students across the University.
We currently provide four units of study at the undergraduate level. WRIT1000 and WRIT1001 are our two junior-level units. WRIT1000 focuses on developing your writing style at the sentence and paragraph level and WRIT1001 explores writing in academic environments. WRIT2002 and ENGL2652 are our two senior-level units. WRIT2002 focuses on developing advanced research abilities and ENGL2652 traces the development of modern theories of rhetoric from the classical to the contemporary.
Our writing courses will equip you with the abilities you need for writing situations both in university and in the workplace. Our expert teaching and networked workshops connect you with a global network of students, researchers and resources.
