With an annual enrollment of more than 10,000 students, our undergraduate writing programs touch the lives of just about every student on campus. Our courses are designed to help all SF State students develop and hone their writing and reading skills so that they can be engaged, effective communicators, critical thinkers, and successful students. We offer courses that meet SF State’s Written English requirements (Area A2 of General Education). We also offer courses in our Composition for Multilingual Students (CMS) program that fulfill SF State’s Written English and Oral Communication requirements (Area A1) that are specifically designed for non-native speakers of English.
