The Liberal Arts Inquiry Writing Requirements - Transfer Students

The CAS Writing Requirements recognize the role of writing across the curriculum, in all majors and programs. We know our students will write for many purposes at U of R as well as beyond, so we designed three areas of writing development to support you: Writing Foundations, Research Writing, and Writing in the Disciplines.

Research Writing and Writing in the Disciplines

Most transfer students will complete their Research Writing (WR) and Writing in the Disciplines (WD) requirements at University of Redlands.

Research Writing (WR) and Writing in the Disciplines (WD) are usually part of 200- to 400-level courses, and are completed by taking any course with the appropriate designation. WR courses also fulfill the Information and Media Literacy Introduction (IMLI) requirement. We encourage you to take a WD course related to your degree or your professional goals.

Writing Foundations

Most transfer students have likely taken one or two courses that will transfer for credit toward this requirement.

Writing Foundations (WF)  requirements are tailored to each student’s specific goals and experiences when they join the Redlands community. Any courses you may need to take for this requirement should be completed within your first year. 

To determine the status of your WF requirements, please take a short mandatory survey. The survey should take about 2 minutes. There is also an option to meet with writing faculty to talk about our resources and your individual writing goals.

This is a new process, and we are interested in your feedback. If you have any questions during the process or would like to share your experience with the process so we can continue to improve, please contact the Chair of Writing.
