College Writing Seminar

Area Goal: This Core Area of Inquiry will invite students to explore strategies for process-based drafting, research, and argumentation in academic writing.

Area Objectives: The complexity of contemporary global society requires that individuals demonstrate effective written communication and rhetorical skills to engage in dialogue, whether in their undergraduate courses, in their careers, or in civic and public discourse. Through this course, students will explore academic practices and strategies--including critical reading and thinking, rhetorical argumentation, the recursive writing process, and information/research literacy--that will develop their writing skills and offer them the opportunity to understand their responsibility to their readers, their sources, and themselves as writers.
