Academic Writing Program


Welcome to the Academic Writing Program

We offer introductory and advanced courses that take a pragmatic approach to rhetoric and composition instruction.

The Academic Writing Program offers introductory and advanced classes in rhetoric and composition at the University of Lethbridge. Our genre-based, writing-in-the disciplines approach to writing instruction ensures that students will gain valuable insight and experience in the theory and practice of reading and writing in the disciplines relevant to their areas of study—whether in the arts, sciences, business, fine arts, health sciences, or education. Effective reading, writing, and reasoning skills, we believe, are essential in academic as well as professional contexts, and they are the foundation of becoming an educated person.

Essentials for Scholarly Communication
