WR 39B:

Critical Reading & Rhetoric

As the first of two lower-division writing requirements, WR 39B (or WR 37) is designed to teach you a methodology for critical reading and to give you ample practice at writing analytical essays for an academic audience. Writing 37 is the same class as 39B, except you’ll spend some extra class-time on language intensive assignments.

Enrollment in WR37 is by invitation only. Before enrolling in WR 39B, you must satisfy the UC Entry Level Writing Requirement.
We look forward to meeting and working with you!
