WRITING SEMINAR 2

All versions of this sophomore level writing course focus on

problem solving and thinking analytically about professional

concerns. Students address key issues in different disciplines

and professions. A student receives College Studies credit for only one offering within this course distribution group.

Two specific courses in the College Studies curriculum,

Writing Seminar II and Contemporary Perspectives, serve as

keystone courses that require students to reflect on liberal-professional connections at Philadelphia University and to

integrate the multiple academic skills they have learned in

the other College Studies courses they have completed.

Therefore, AP/transfer credit is not awarded for Writing Seminar II.  Students must select one course from the following list:
