Other students may choose this class and perhaps a second tier course as well as an alternative to the WST and those students do not ever have to take the WST The course culminates in a portfolio which is evaluated by faculty from across the curriculum As a result of this evaluation a student may be required to repeat the firsttier course or enroll in a secondtier course or may be found to have met the entire writing skills requirement This course will be delivered in a hybrid fashion in that it will combine facetoface classroom instruction with online learning During facetoface class sessions students will receive instruction on important elements of essay writing and different rhetorical genres as well as detailed explanation of lst tier portfolio contents and requirements In
