ENGCMP 0200: Seminar in Composition

This introductory course offers students opportunities to improve as writers by developing their understanding of how they and others use writing to interpret and share experiences, affect behavior, and position themselves in the world. Although specific reading and writing assignments may vary from section to section, in all sections student writing will be the primary focus. As a step toward college-level critical literacy, this course is designed to help student writers become more engaged, imaginative, and disciplined composers, better equipped to handle complex subjects thoughtfully and to use sources responsibly. All sections will require at least one crafted composition per week as well as participation in class discussion about writing.
