Why Writing Works

Disciplinary Approaches to Composing Texts

What are Disciplinary Perspectives?

Disciplinary Perspectives provide information on writing, reading, research, documentation in specific fields of study written by faculty in those disciplines. You'll find that while there are some aspects of writing, reading, research, and documentation that are quite specific to your discipline, many aspects of good writing overlap all academic subjects. 

Our list of disciplines is growing, and you might not find your specific major here at this time. If you don't see yours, we encourage you to look at material for a discipline that is in the same general area of study as your major. There are likely many overlapping principles.
