ENGL 1101 - Composition I
The primary purpose of this course is to help students develop college-level writing skills. By encouraging students to explore multiple perspectives of a particular issue, belief, idea, value, and the like, this theme-based course also helps students recognize that there are many ways to view particular issues and encourages them to participate in the debate. This component of the course is designed to engage students by exposing them to the critical and comparative function of academic study-to teach them that college not only entails the acquisition of knowledge, but also the critical examination of the knowledge they acquire. The course also helps students learn that college requires active learning and inquiry that’s far different from what they experience in high school. Each professor selects his or her topic for the course.
ENGL 1101 and ENGL 1102 teach essential writing and research skills necessary for success in other college courses. Further, these courses provide a foundation for the writing-intensive classes students must take in order to complete the Rhetorica Program. Given the importance of these courses, it is the intent of The English Department for students to complete ENGL 1101 and ENGL 1102 in consecutive semesters of their first year. Therefore, first year students who are not dual-enrolled or without ENGL 1101 AP or transfer credit must take ENGL 1101 their first semester of enrollment and consecutive semesters (Fall or Spring) until successful completion. Upon successful completion of ENGL 1101, students shall take ENGL 1102 in the consecutive semester(s) (Fall or Spring) until successful completion. Matriculated students may not receive transfer credit from other institutions for ENGL 1101 and ENGL 1102. Any variation from this policy requires written approval of the Chair of the English Department and Dean of the Humanities. When Offered: Fall & Spring Yearly
