200-level Seminars

WRI 207, WRI 208, and WRI 209

The 200-level writing seminars give transfer students the opportunity to expand upon their previous writing instruction for assignments at Princeton and in preparation for junior and senior independent work. Students begin the term with a self-assessment and collectively identify the tools a successful academic writer needs. Writing assignments build towards a self-directed research project and the term ends with a reimagining of that project as a junior paper proposal. All work in the course will guide students towards identifying the necessary methods and resources to produce strong work as a rising practitioner in their field.


Courses cross-listed in the Writing Program are designed to help students build on what they learn as first-year students in the Writing Seminars about the values held in common across disciplines—e.g., articulating a compelling question or problem, making an argument based on evidence and analysis, engaging responsibly with sources—and translate them into the context of more advanced and discipline-specific writing projects. Please note that cross-listed courses do not fulfill the University writing requirement.
