We also tried to have all first-year courses include writing, but
departments like Econ, Comp Sci and Chemistry would have radically
different training than the Humanities division did.

Since then, the writing requirement now has three levels: Argumentative,
Craft and Product. In their first semester, a student must take either a
FYC which qualifies as A or C, or they have to take a different course that
semester with that level. That way, for instance, if you take the Calculus
FYC you could also take College Writing during the first semester. Most,
but not all , FYC have a writing designation of A or C.
