The Writing Program

Computer Science and Engineering Building, EBU 3B, Room 1114

Following completion of the UC Entry Level Writing Requirement, all students entering as freshmen complete a two-course sequence at UC San Diego in Warren Writing (WCWP 10A-B). All students entering as transfers, please see the Earl Warren College general education section.

Warren Writing courses introduce students to academic argumentation. These seminar-style classes engage students in the scholarly practices necessary for writing in the academy. Students receive individual feedback not only from their instructors but also from their peers. The minimum writing requirement is eight thousand words per quarter.

Ethics and Society

Computer Science and Engineering Building, EBU 3B, Room 1114

Two core courses in Ethics and Society are required of all Warren students entering as freshmen or as transfers without the completion of IGETC, or an approved transfer articulation agreement. The courses are PHIL 27 or POLI 27, and PHIL 28 or POLI 28 (see department listings). A student may enroll in these courses through either department. The courses are to be taken immediately following completion of WCWP 10A-B (or WARR 11A-B). PHIL 27 or POLI 27 must be taken before PHIL 28 or POLI 28.

Warren College Honors Society

Computer Science and Engineering Building, EBU 3B, Room 1102

The Warren College Honors Society offers students educational, cultural, and social experiences designed to broaden their intellectual interests. The activities vary each quarter and are planned to foster student interaction and promote a sense of community.

Entering freshmen with a high school GPA of 3.8 or above and SAT I scores of 700 reading/700 math/700 writing, or the ACT equivalent, are eligible to participate in the honors society. To remain in the program, students must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.7 on all graded units completed at UC San Diego.

Students who do not qualify for the honors society at the time of admission, and all transfer students, may join as soon as a cumulative GPA of 3.7 is attained on twelve or more graded units completed at UC San Diego. In all subsequent quarters, students must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.7 on all graded units completed at UC San Diego to remain in the program. The Warren College Honors Society does not require students to apply to the program or produce research projects in order to continue in the program.

Any Warren honors student who writes a research paper for a department honors course may submit his or her paper to the Warren College Provost’s Office for consideration for the Michael Addison Award. The award is presented annually at commencement to the Warren honors student who is judged to have written the most distinguished research paper. The submission must be accompanied by a letter of support from the faculty department honors adviser.

The Warren Scholars Seminar offers an interdisciplinary curriculum that is designed to help students broaden their intellectual interests and prepare them for rigorous academic inquiry. Students enroll in two seminars, WARR 11A-B, which fulfill the college writing requirement.

Entering first-year honors program students are admitted to the Warren Scholars Seminar by application and invitation.
