In light of the recent FAS announcement about Fall 2020, the Writing Program is available to answer any questions you may have. If you are a deferring student with questions about when to take the Writing Exam, or if you are either a deferring or enrolling student with questions about term assignments, sectioning, placement, or Expos courses, we would be very happy to hear from you. Please contact us at expos@fas.harvard.edu. Please also review our FAQ page for helpful information. 

If you are trying to decide whether to defer for the upcoming academic year, we strongly encourage you to consult with a trusted advisor before finalizing your decision. The College has trained a special team of advisers to help you work through your decision. You can email fall2020advising@fas.harvard.edu to connect with an adviser.  

Welcome

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.
