Writing Across Space & Time

The West Virginia University English Department, with the support of the Office of Extended Learning, offers a selection of online courses to introduce qualified part-time students, who may be constrained by geographic distance or invariable schedules, to writing at the University level. Each course is designed to help prepare students to meet some of the challenges of a degree program at WVU by fostering critical inquiry and developing communications strategies.

The English Department now offers qualified part-time learners the opportunity to earn an undergraduate minor, if the student is not an English major, or a concentration, if the student is an English major, in Professional Writing and Editing 100% online. Non-degree seeking students will earn a Professional Writing and Editing certificate upon completion of the sequence of PWE classes. For more information, click here.
