11/10 – Applying to Expository Writing Programs

Many universities around the country now have writing programs modeled on the one Harvard first developed in the 1980s. These programs offer first-year writing courses aimed at teaching the principles that inform academic writing across the disciplines; to that end, they are generally staffed by full-time faculty who hold a wide range of humanities, social science, and science PhDs. Because many universities require their undergraduates to take first-year writing, hiring in this area remains relatively stable even during our current moment of fiscal uncertainty.
