English Composition Lab and Writing Tutorials

The Marian University Writing Center offers individualized, student directed credit-bearing courses. There are two types of courses available through the Writing Center:

  1. ENG L01 English Composition Lab
  2. Writing Tutorial (listed as sections ENG L12 / L10 / L20 / L30 / L40 in the course catalog)

The English Composition Lab is a one-credit course generally taken in tandem with ENG 101. Writing Tutorials are one- to three-credit courses (as determined by the student) available to all students who desire more experience in writing within specific disciplines and genres. 

Students enrolled in the English Composition Lab and Writing Tutorial meet once a week, individually, with a lab instructor. Weekly meeting times are selected by the student, and the sessions are intended to be collaborative, relaxed, and engaging. Writing Lab Instructors act as "guide, translator and advocate," navigating writing within college contexts alongside students and supporting them as needed with literacy tasks.

To register for an English Composition Lab or Writing Tutorial, please speak to your advisor or see the Writing Center faculty and staff.

Multilingal, Hyrbrid and Online options

The English Composition Lab and Writing Tutorials can be taken fully face-to-face, fully online via Microsoft Teams online collaboration software, in a Hybrid format where several in-person meetings are interspersed with a majority of online meetings, and Multilingual options for English Language Learners. Students who elect he multilingual option will work one-on-one with a TESOL or language minority student lab instructor. To select your choice of Writing Lab medium and instructor, register for either the English Composition Lab or Writing Tutorial. When you complete the sign-up process to pair you with a Lab Instructor, choose the appropriate option for you. If you have any questions, contact Tanisha Neely, Assistant Director of Operations, or Aaron Wilder, Writing Center Director.
