Course Title:Introduction to English Studies
Course
Description:
This writing-intensive class introduces beginning and intended English majors to the skills and knowledge necessary for successful pursuit of a degree in English: close reading, critical writing, acquaintance with current theoretical issues, and familiarity with bibliographic and electronic resources. Required of all English majors.
Athena Title:INTRO ENG STUDIES
Duplicate Credit:Not open to students with credit in ENGL 3000 or ENGL 4000
Nontraditional Format:This course is writing intensive, which means that the course will include substantial and ongoing writing assignments that a) relate clearly to course learning; b) teach the communication values of a discipline—for example, its practices of argument, evidence, credibility, and format; and c) prepare students for further writing in their academic work, in graduate school, and in professional life. The written assignments will result in a significant and diverse body of written work (the equivalent of 6000 words or 25 pages) and the instructor (and/or the teaching assistant assigned to the course) will be closely involved in student writing, providing opportunities for feedback and substantive revision.
