**Summer 2019, Fall 2019, or Spring 2020**requirements.Students in good academic standing at Indiana University who are not earning a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism are eligible to apply to this certificate program. Students must contact a Media School academic advisor.

To apply for the certificate, students must have completed the following:

- At least 26 credit hours toward a bachelor's degree
- A GPA of 2.200 or higher for all courses taken so far
- One (1) course on the list with a grade of C or higher
- Introduces composition skills applicable to all majors: topic and thesis development, finding and integrating evidence, drafting and revising, organization from introduction to conclusion. Uses short literary texts from diverse genres, periods, and national traditions for discussion and essay topics. (3 credit hours.)
- Teaches skills of critical reading, thinking, and writing to help students meaningfully engage artifacts, events, and issues in our world. The course builds students' abilities to read written and cultural texts critically; to analyze those texts in ways that engage both students' own experiences and the perspectives of others; and to write about those texts for a range of audiences and purposes as a means of participating in broader conversations. Assignments emphasize the analysis and synthesis of sources in making and developing claims. Credit given for only one of ENG-W 131 or ENG-W 170. (3 credit hours.)
- An alternative to ENG-W 131, this freshman composition course offers a challenging sequence of projects in reading and writing. Topics and approaches vary by section; the focus, however, is on projects that encourage sustained inquiry into complex problems or significant issues. Credit given for only one of ENG-W 131 or ENG-W 170. (3 credit hours.)
