Course Description

This course is designed to introduce students to the English major. On the most fundamental level, the course is designed to enhance your understanding of academic writing and improve your critical reading and writing skills. Students will read and interpret primary texts, but will also be trained to effectively employ critical material in their own arguments as well as recognize the various types of critical discourse practiced in the humanities. In addition, students will be introduced to web authoring software and are expected to gain a basic fluency in HTML code.
