Questions and Answers

I can already write, so why do I have to take writing?

There is a vast difference between normal, or conversational, communication and academic, or appropriate workplace, communication. Being able to write in an academic/workplace setting is a vital skill for students to learn. Hiring managers often base hiring decisions less on technical skill, and more on being able to communicate appropriately, accurately, and with a degree of competence.

What comes after WRI 95?

What course you take after Writing 95 is determined by your chosen path at KCC.

If you are enrolled in specific career technical education (CTE) programs your next step will be WRI 117.  Intro to Technical Communications will fulfill the writing requirement for that program. To see if your pathway is one of these please check the curriculum maps for your program.

All other programs will continue from WRI 95 to WRI 121 then WRI 122. English composition I & II are required for college transfer pathway students and most non-degree CTE programs. To see if your pathway is one of these, please check the curriculum maps for your program.
