The University of Oregon’s Composition Program provides training for all undergraduates in college-level writing, with a focus on the argumentative essay.
WR 121, 122, and 123 prepare students to participate actively in the the intellectual work of the university community. WR 121 is devoted to college-level written reasoning and critical reading, WR 122 focuses on the argumentative essay, and WR 123 focuses on the argumentative research essay. While disciplines on campus differ in their particular conventions and conversations, we all share in finding important questions to respond to in writing. The composition sequence usually consists of two quarters of study: WR121 and WR122 or WR 123.
