REPORT ON RECERTIFICATION OF W COURSE: WFSC 484
 
We recommend that WFSC 484 Internship be certified as a writing (W) course for four academic years (1/16 to 1/20). We have reviewed a representative syllabus and have determined that the course meets or exceeds the following criteria:
 
  1. Percentage of final grade based on writing quality: 100%
  2. Course content appropriate to the major
  3. Total number of words: 2250
  4. Instructor to student ratio for one section: 1:24
Since original certification, additional writing assignments have been added to the course. Students write a progress report and a final report about their internship. They get instructor comments on an outline and preliminary draft of the final report. Instruction is provided in the form of oral and online feedback by the instructor during required meetings with the student and includes review of the basics of professional journal style and format and organization. Students are informed how to obtain writing assistance from the University Writing Center and online resources.
