Department Writing Requirement

A portfolio of student term papers will be established. It will contain papers submitted as partial fulfillment of requirements in geology courses. Prior to the student’s final semester, the Department will, as a group, review at least three papers in the portfolio. If the faculty agree the work is satisfactory, the student will have successfully completed the writing requirement. Should review of the papers indicate that the student’s writing skills are not acceptable, he/she will be required to enroll in a course that emphasizes writing skills. (It could be a regularly scheduled course or a directed study.
