Intensive English for International Students
College of Liberal Arts
English 100 is an advanced-level course in academic writing for non-native speakers of English. It teaches reading, writing, and presentation skills, and it prepares students for English 1157 and 1158. During this course, you will be required to read others’ work critically and to understand rhetorical situations. You will learn to write effectively and creatively, to follow grammatical rules so that your language aids—rather than distracts—your readers, and to support and develop your ideas with evidence and detail. This course will provide you with the structural support for writing, and from there you will build your own meaning through your own words. As a writer, you must ask questions, explore ideas, take risks, embrace different perspectives, and think critically about yourself and about the world around you.
Older syllabi may not be applicable to the current semester. Be sure to verify content with the instructor.
