The Center for Writing Across the Curriculum publishes Saint Mary's College's two journals of undergraduate, academic writing: The Undergraduate and Spectrum.
The Undergraduate, which was first published in 1991, is an academic journal devoted to showcasing exemplary work from the Collegiate Seminar Program. In addition to publishing traditional academic essays, we have also published alternative seminar assignments, such as letters or e-mails between different authors and self-reflection essays. Essays can be nominated by both faculty members and students.
