Welcome to Western Carolina University's Writing, Rhetoric, and Composition Studies (WRCS - pronounced WORKS) program, which consists of two semesters of writing (ENGL 101 in your freshman year and ENGL 202 in your sophomore year) required by the university's Liberal Studies Program. On behalf of everybody in the English department, especially those of us who teach in the WRCS, we're glad you're here.

Composition and rhetoric is about more than writing. It’s about ideas, philosophy, history, psychology, politics, economics, the world. It’s about what interests you and what you can make interesting to others. In other words, composition is about your major and your life. What you learn in your two composition courses will prepare you for the next four years of college and for your working and personal life beyond this institution.

Dr. Nate Kreuter
Director of WRCS program
