A Western course may be designated as an essay course if it has a significant writing component (defined by Senate) involving written assignments (essays or other appropriate prose composition, excluding examinations) to demonstrate the student's competence in essay writing.

Designated essay courses are identified by the suffixes as follows: E (essay 1.0 course); F (first term essay 0.5 course); G (second term essay 0.5 course); Z (essay 0.5 course). Example: Political Science 020E.

For essay requirements in an Honors Bachelor, Bachelor (Four-Year), or Bachelor (Three-Year) degree, please refer to the "Graduation Regulations" section for each degree.
