September 2017: Let's make it 16! For the 16th year in a row, US News & World Report ranked Mason as one of the top Writing in the Disciplines programs in the country. Ranked alongside programs at Harvard, Princeton, and Duke Universities, Mason WAC is proud to be recognized for its contributions to writing excellence. News story here.
