Core Writing

The Core Writing Program at the University of Nevada, Reno offers a series of first-year writing courses designed to meet the needs of incoming students. English 101 and 102 are Core Curriculum courses, part of the designated 33 credit-hour requirement for all students. Students must pass ENG 102 in order to graduate from the University. Additionally, ENG 102 is a prerequisite for most courses in all majors, the Core Humanities curriculum requirement, and the University's Diversity and Capstone electives.


The program is operated by the Department of English. For more information or concerns, please see contacts below.
