Welcome to the Composition Program at SUNY New Paltz. We believe that initial writing courses are foundational to student success both in college and beyond. We hope this New Voices, New Visions site will provide you with useful information and resources. If you have questions about the Composition Program, please refer to the contact information below.
Our Purpose for the required first-year writing courses, offered by the Composition Program, is to assist students in developing the capacities to think critically, communicate effectively, and to expand their depth of knowledge in order to become lifelong learners as well as engaged and productive citizens.
Courses in our Composition Program consist of Composition I and II, Composition I and II Supplemental Writing Workshop (SWW), Composition I and II English as a Second Language (ESL/SWW), General Honors English I and II, and Intermediate Composition courses. Most students are required to complete a two-course Composition sequence in order to graduate; this is a university policy that applies to all matriculated students from all majors.
