Part II Research Writing

ENGLISH I & II

The second course in a first-year series is a writing course that focuses on developing academic research writing skills that students will utilize in their academic and professional contexts. The course introduces students to the methods, strategies, and skills required to conduct an informed inquiry: critical reading, critical analysis, synthesis, constructing a research-based argument, and reflection. The course is themed, and students formulate their research questions around that theme. Students also learn how to evaluate academic and non-academic sources and proper citation and documentation of sources. The course also focuses on improving oral communication skills to prepare students to share their research with various audiences.
