McGill Writing Centre

McGill Writing Centre

The McGill Writing Centre (MWC) offers credit courses in academic writing that may be taken to fulfil language requirements or as electives in some degree programs. In some faculties, you need to obtain approval from your Student Affairs Office as well as from your academic adviser before you take courses outside of your faculty, especially if the courses do not form part of your program requirements. In addition to its credit course offerings, the MWC offers non-credit courses, workshops, and individualized tutoring. For further information, please visit the MWC website: www.mcgill.ca/mwc.
