Two five-credit course or equivalent is required. The courses must be taken in series: ELWR - C1 - C2 - DC


The first-year writing requirements at UCSC consist of the Entry-Level Writing Requirement (ELWR), Composition 1 (C1) and Composition 2 (C2). All incoming lower-division students will be placed in an appropriate section of their college core course, depending on what requirements they have yet to satisfy when they enter. All sections of the core courses provide instruction in critical reading, analytical writing, and speaking in seminar;  C2 sections provide instruction in research skills as well. All sections carry five units of credit and consider approximately the same material.
