Stanford Introductory Studies is a new division of VPUE created through the merger of Freshman and Sophomore Programs, the Introduction to the Humanities Program, and the Program in Writing and Rhetoric. It offers courses for first-year students (IHUM, PWR 1, Freshman Seminars, and the residential-academic program SLE), sophomores (PWR 2, Sophomore Seminars and Dialogues), upper-division students (Writing in the Major), September Studies programs (Sophomore College, Arts Intensive, Bing Honors College), and writing support for all students through the Hume Writing Center.
