General Studies Writing
Welcome to General Studies Writing (GSW), Bowling Green State University's first year writing program.
GSW courses work in combination to provide students sustained,
guided practice writing for a variety of academic audiences and
Our program consists of three dynamic courses on writing:
GSW 1100: Intensive Introduction to Academic Writing
GSW 1110: Introduction to Academic Writing
- GSW 1120: Academic Writing
GSW faculty dedicate themselves to working closely with students,
providing writers instructional support as they compose a series of
projects across multiple genres and modalities. Our ongoing
collaborations with the Learning Commons, STAC, and other campus
partners provide students additional opportunities to understand and
perform writing as a dynamic means of understanding, and connecting
with, and affecting positive change in the many communities of which
each of us is a member.
Please feel encouraged to contact us or stop by 215 East Hall if you would like an opportunity to learn more about our program.
