Since 1872, a course that meets the expository writing requirement has been the one academic experience required of every Harvard student. The Harvard College Writing Program teaches academic writing courses, publishes writing guides, creates digital learning tools, and consults with departments and programs on instructors' writing pedagogy.


We welcome you to "Expos," a Harvard tradition.
