Writing Seminar I

Writing Seminar I

The first of two core writing-specific courses in the Hallmarks General Education Program, Writing Seminar I is taken in the first year of study. The interconnected skills of careful reading, critical thinking, and cogent writing are the primary concerns of this course. The seminar focuses on writing about writing and discourse studies.


ESL: Writing Seminar I

This course parallels Writing Seminar I, yet is specifically designed for students whose first language is not English. Writing assignments include at least three expository essays and a library research paper related to the theme. To be placed in the course, students must either pass H99ESL or, after submitting a writing sample, be placed by a designated faculty member.
