What is EWP 115?

EWP 115 is a three-credit writing course that aims to develop competency in fundamental and inter-disciplinary academic writing skills by reviewing grammatical and structural concepts. The recursive nature of writing will be emphasized as students receive feedback at different stages of the writing process. Students will benefit from reviewing some work one-on-one with Writing Centre consultants. For those who entered Bishop’s before September 2020, passing EWP 115 satisfies the EWP graduation requirement.

How will EWP 115 improve your writing?

  • You will learn how to plan, organize and develop ideas for paragraphs and essays.
  • You will learn strategies to improve sentence structure, grammar and punctuation.
  • You will receive individualized attention from a Writing Centre consultant.

Who should take EWP 115?

  • Students who want to improve their basic academic writing skills.
  • Students who entered Bishop’s prior to September 2020 and have not passed the EWP Exam.

*Students who are unsure if they should take EWP 115 or another writing course should complete the Write for Success assessment.
