If you are studying abroad through a U.S. program, please be sure your course load equals a full load. (?)

If you wish to use a course abroad to fulfill the writing intensive requirement, make a formal request (?)

The university defines a writing-intensive (W) course as one in which students write at least 20 pages of finished writing over multiple assignments, usually 3 or 4 papers; instructors respond to students’ work in written comments or in conference, or both; and students have at least one opportunity to receive their instructor’s response on a draft and then revise. In other words, a writing-intensive course does more than assign writing; it guides students’ practice in writing and makes writing an integral part of the course.
Sample (Summer 2010) :

1. Project #1: Shakespeare Comedy [Taming of the Shrew] : A character analysis, journal, and critical analysis of play. The only section of this project that would need to undergo the outline, rough draft, final draft process is that critical analysis section. You would not need to revise the journal and character analysis sections. The total of the 3 sections should be 20 pages.

2. Project #2: Don Juan and Commedia Dell'arte + Performance Research Paper. This paper could take many forms, depending on what you are interested in researching. It would be a 20 page (outline, rough draft, final draft) project researching Moliere, Commedia. [This research paper would be geared toward academically prepping you for your creative work this summer in USA?]
