We Care About Writing

The Merritt Writing Program offers an array of courses in which students explore the art of critical thinking, craft their written expression, and address a variety of issues and audiences.

Our interdisciplinary approach to writing offers students the opportunity to reflect broadly on their college education as well as to consider a range of pre-professional and academic opportunities.  Learn more...
