5. Upper-division Writing Requirement
All degree candidates must demonstrate skill in written English at a level acceptable for Technological Systems Management majors. To satisfy this requirement, a TSM major must submit a paper written for an upper-division EST course for review. Students whose writing does not meet the required standard are referred for remedial help. The requirement may also be met by earning a grade of C or higher in a writing-intensive course approved by the department or, if the student has a double major, by satisfying the upper-division writing requirement in the other major.
