Each year, the Princeton Writing Program offers over a 100 topic-based Writing Seminars, each capped at no more than 12 students. Every Princeton freshman, without exception, must complete a Writing Seminar in fulfillment of the University writing requirement.
The Writing Seminar faculty is an interdisciplinary group of scholars from the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. The 35-40 members of the faculty include post-doctoral lecturers recruited in a national search to teach in the Program, as well as Princeton professors, qualified Princeton administrators and staff, and advanced Princeton graduate students. For lecturers, the course load is typically two seminars per term on the same topic; for Princeton graduate students, it’s one seminar per term; for all others, it’s one seminar per academic year.
