An English composition course is a
requirement in most programs, both academic and professional, because it
teaches essential reading, thinking, and communication skills.
We offer multiple sections of
our foundation writing course. English 100 teaches students the fundamentals of first year university
writing, as well as valuable transferable skills. You’ll hone your ability to read critically,
respond thoughtfully in discussions, and compose well-structured and
well-reasoned arguments. And you’ll be
introduced to the basics of citing sources and researching responsibly.
course examines aspects of contemporary culture through a variety of print and
other media. Course themes and cultural content are chosen by individual
instructors, who ensure the course material is both engaging and relevant.
Assignments such as the critical response, the narrative
argument, and the documented research essay prepare students for the
demands of thoughtful reading and writing at university.
A program requirement in the Bachelor of Arts with a major in Liberal Studies Degree, this course builds on writing skills introduced
in English 100, and is intended to increase versatility by deepening the
writer’s knowledge of rhetorical choices and awareness of current essay genres.
English 300 is offered each Spring semester.
