Writing skills of students in various faculties are competencies that need to be developed in accordance with the vision and purpose for the faculty itself. The Faculty of Education is a faculty which educates and writing skills to students from any department to have a sensitivity and a critical attitude toward education. This research employs qualitative research. It was expected to give inspirations to further research in linear field and also to inspire readers to implement writing based-project in their instruction. Using project-based learning directly guides them to write an article. The study involved 32 students of the 2nd of Mathematics Education Academic Year 2015/2016. We describe a reflective study on their articles that published in the local mass media. The results show that the students’ interest were very varied, there are education and history education, education and values, contemporary problems of education and mathematics education. It is also show that using project based-learning, the number of students’ articles published in mass media is 25% (8 of 32 articles), the remain articles (75%) were under review. From the results, it can be concluded that by using project-based learning, students’ writing ability can be enhanced. Further, this learning can foster student learning and engage faculty in professional development. standards in reporting task. Therefore, writing is taught in technical areas without ever referring to the purpose of the study program that inherent with the institution's vision. Writing learning in the study program must inherent with a goal of the study program. So that, writing learning is not emphasized on theories of writing, but on writing task. Each study program is managed by the faculty overriding so that each study program must have a common goal of writing learning with another program in the same faculty. It is not true that each writing course has the same contents. This perspective caused by the vision of each faculty is not integrated into writing course. Each of faculty has the writing topic that different with others. Writing topic has the same purpose if it did in the same faculty. Therefore, the goal of writing for students Faculty of Education of any study program must contain the same purpose and passion. There is no different writing goal for students of mathematics education with students of language education. Therefore, it is necessary for each study program to develop writing in order to increase students’ skill. Whatever study program, writing standards for the faculty of education must bear the hallmark of education.
