Writing 1: Environments of Merced
Writing 1 is the first sequence in the Writing general education requirement at UCM. In this academic writing course, students engage topics surrounding language, culture and society. This fall’s class of 17 first-year students all came from different hometowns and shared the experience of being “new” to Merced. Their curiosity of the culture and landscapes of UCM and the Central Valley led them on anthropological investigations of these new places and experiences.
