ENGL 102: English Composition II

5 Cr
Quarters: F, W, S, SR
The second of two college-level courses, ENGL 102 will continue to require clear, unified, coherent, and well-developed essays of increasing complexity. While consideration of audience is an inherent part of the writing required in ENGL& 101 , students in ENGL 102 will learn to consider more explicitly the role the audience plays when they write. In seeking to gain credibility with their audience and to persuade others to their points of view, students will write extended arguments. Through reading, writing, and discussion, students will continue to examine their own assumptions and opinions and to consider the facts and reasoning of others. In their writing, they will bring to bear a variety of texts to support their arguments as they learn basic research techniques and the documentation conventions of the Modern Language Association or comparable style sheets from other disciplines. Extended research, the province of ENGL 203 , will not be required.
Prerequisite: ENGL& 101  with a grade of C or better.
