Your opportunity to learn more about yourself and the world around you through writing!  


First Year Writing Program


The writing faculty at Southern Miss want to be sure that students are taking courses that allow them to be successful in their first-year and throughout their academic careers. We believe these courses will help students to build community with their peers and instructors and will prepare them to meet their academic goals. We also recognize that ACT placement is not optimal, and we have done our best to ensure that students have an opportunity to both understand their class options and to appeal their placement.
