Writing Intensive Requirement: KCC requires students to take 1 writing intensive course. In Mental Health and Human Services, we have one writing intensive course instructor, Professor Billies. (That means, if you take Professor Billies courses you will meet your writing intensive requirement. This does not include the field internship.)
