As every first-year college student discovers, college writing is different from high school writing. The Cooper Union Summer Writing Program is a unique three-week course designed to give high school seniors and juniors a head start on the skills they need to succeed at the college level. Students get individual attention and immediate feedback in small—10 students in on-campus class; 8 in the online class—seminar-style classes taught by college instructors; lots of in-class writing lets students practice what they’re learning in a supportive environment.
The program is appropriate for all college-bound writers and is especially helpful for students who don’t think of themselves as writers. There are two class options: online, with a real-time virtual class that lets students interact with the instructor and each other, and live on Cooper’s East Village campus.
