Course Information

ENGLISH 1102 is a composition course that integrates media-rich technologies, develops students’ writing skills beyond the levels of proficiency required by ENGLISH 1101, emphasizes college-level critical thinking and reading skills (interpretation and evaluation of texts), and incorporates a variety of advanced research methods.  Broadly stated, the course achieves its objectives through writing assignments focusing on literary works chosen from three genres: prose (short stories), poetry, and plays.

Students who satisfactorily complete this course will improve their levels of competency in reading, writing, critical thinking, and researching.
